Would you take a look at the following?
1. The houses are placed on the land in a way so the sun warms them during cold months and is blocked during hot months.
What does the red part mean in this case? Does one of the following express a similar meaning?
a) ... in a manner in which the sun ....
b) ... in a sense so that the sun ...
c) ... in a manner, and as a result, the sun ...
If all of them don't have the meaning of "...in a way so the sun ...," would you let me know the meaning of that?
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
The way the houses are placed (their position, that is) allows them to be warmed by the sun in the cold months while kept in the shade (blocked sun) in hte hot ones.
