Streaming Light

Windows come in all sizes and can be installed in any direction.  Our new place will make use of rectangular windows (the size will be about 18″ x 48″), placed horizontally and vertically to make the best use of natural light while providing privacy.

The images below show the windows used horizontally in the kitchen as almost a backsplash, and vertically to brighten up a galley kitchen (and notice the original container flooring in the first pic!).

The pictures above use the horizontal windows in the bedroom to provide a little more privacy, while still letting light stream in.

We are also planning to place some horizontal windows really low on the walls (almost floor-level) so that light can come in and the dogs can look out.
