Windows Skylight Window Type Glass Railing Design Photos And Ideas

Modern windows have the vital task of connecting your home with the outside world. Bringing in air and light, they provide opportunities for contemplation when arranged above a dining nook, or a portal to the natural world when overlooking an oceanside scene. Framed with wood, metal, or vinyl, these inspiration window designs range from skylights to picture windows.

This compact London apartment by architects Silvia Ullmayer and Allan Sylvester and joiner Roger Hynam has a fully retractable mechanical skylight that opens and closes automatically when its sensors detect rain or excessive wind.
