    The design of vertical buffer tank is usually related to space saving.
    I don't see any reason why you can't design an horizontal one.

    I would suggest you to design it round one and place it in a small [2%] slope towards the outlet valve to keep it clean.

    Hi
    generally buffer storage vessels are designed to give average 15% chilled water capacity volume expressed as a thermal storage volume. Bare in mind the floor loadings if at top of a building, then include baffles for water surge effect as well. Generally cross flow for maximizing regeneration to heat source.
    There are formulas in " engineering tool box " google it. Vertical or horizontal earth quakes can be damaging with large volume vessels.
