‘Massing’ refers to a building’s size and shape. It includes building height, scale (the relationship between elements of a building or the building and its surrounding context) and depth (usually from front to back). The placement of buildings on a site refers to the location of buildings relative to one another, as well as their setbacks from the site’s boundaries.
