11 Jul A room with a view
One of the greatest advantages of architectural windows is the opportunity they create to make the most of a spectacular view.
From the city, to the surf, into the forest and beyond, we live in a world with an abundance of beauty. Windows provide the opportunity to enjoy inside, the nature we experience outside. Large sections of glass enhance the atmosphere within an interior space, creating a connection between the external and internal and blurring the threshold boundaries. Double glazing and thermally broken framing systems, such as the EDGE Architectural range, have opened up new opportunities for impressive window design in almost any climate.
Strategic window planning is essential when aiming to embrace a landscape. The frame around a window acts similar to a picture frame around a photograph. Effective placement can transform rooms into intriguing spaces. Below are some incredible examples of window design that has captured surrounding landscape in a breathtaking or interesting style.
Woodland mystery: This project uses selective framing to capture tree trunks but not treetops. The interior window bed with a teasing view of the surrounding landscape really makes this interior magical.
Snow peep: Strategically placed, this narrow window to the outside world looks like a painting on the wall.
Always look on the bright side: This project transforms an average city rooftop view into a spectacular feature. The Georgian style frame, combined with the capture of sunlight is breathtaking.
Residential resting: Don’t think a stunning view is restricted to exotic and foreign places. Landscaped backyards are also beautiful, especially when viewed through a glass window box seat.
Never wake: Practically no decoration is needed in this interior, all due to the sliding door application. Imagine waking up here.
Spa seclusion: It’s rare that windows are associated with privacy, but in this project, the outlook onto nothing but autumn treetops makes this bathroom a private oasis.
