If you want to bring the outdoors in, a wall of windows, (and sometimes doors), is a great way to do it. We have approached the design of window walls in many ways. Some of our clients want only large sheets of glass, and others prefer many smaller panes with muntins. Either way, it is all about the proportions.
Additional concerns are heat gain and heat loss depending on the orientation. Well-made thermopane windows are available these days in many finishes and materials.
A wall of windows is easier to achieve now than ever before. No room needs to go without light and view.
