When designing a custom residence, one of the variables that we diligently consider is the daylight plane. Consider it the vertical counterpart to setbacks, (see Setbacks
post for more information), that determines the maximum height that a building can be. Depending on the municipality the residence is in, there are exceptions of ways to break through this plane, but they are few. Like the setbacks, the daylight plane is invisible but crucial. We take careful consideration of the requirements as they can cause design-altering consequences if ignored.
