Architectural bureau Timmins + Whyte Architects presented a project of a small house similar to a town house with conceptual ideas for visual and practical expansion of living space. Large panoramic windows became one of the main tools for realizing the task.

Architects dispelled the stereotype that the panorama is used only in elite mansions, and integrated it into small traditional housing. Due to this, the building received not only a modern look, but also new opportunities. Let’s take a closer look at the project of a house with large panoramic windows.

increased space in the house with large panoramic windows

Clients wanted to achieve openness and freedom of space, which, in principle, is not typical of classical town houses. The architects realized the task by creating a second light with continuous glazing from the floor to the ceiling of the upper floor. A small living space becomes light, spacious and bright – it is practically combined with the external space. Due to the latter, housing is not visually limited by gloomy walls.

Large panoramic windows on the ground floor are sliding – due to this, the internal social space can be combined with a house terrace, a recreation area in the fresh air. A swimming pool is located a few meters from here – thanks to the panoramic sliding structures, it is easily accessible from home. The interior space is closely beaten with landscaping.

The peculiarity of the house is that it occupies the width of the entire plot, and you can go to the back yard only through the building itself. Due to the panoramic glazing, a through view is created from one part of the yard to another – the area also does not seem so crowded.

softness and freshness of the interior due to panoramic glazing

From all sides of the house overlooks the adjacent territory. Due to this, housing receives a lot of daylight, and you can adjust its level with the help of blinds. The rooms create a feeling of calm and tranquility. This is highlighted by light Scandinavian-style finishes and interiors.

The living area and kitchen seem to be attached to the garden – the situation here will change as nature transforms on the street. Green foliage near the house with large panoramic windows seems to complement the interior, adding to it naturalness, natural comfort and coziness. The trees partially protect the house from the scorching sun, affect the comfort of the microclimate.

Natural materials, such as wood, stone, and eco-friendly textiles, were also mainly used in the setting itself. Emphasis is made using fresh flowers in flowerpots. Everything is done in a natural color palette – with a sufficient amount of daylight, such an interior looks especially advantageous.

Through panoramic glazing in the living room virtually eliminates the space from the borders. The room is light at any time of the day. In summer, this part of the house can be practically turned into a covered terrace, revealing panoramic structures on both sides.

Large panoramic windows on a small living space saved the premises from cramped structures, isolation and gloom. The space is as open as possible, filled with sunlight, and has a modern design – the panorama to the floor is a trend in modern housing construction.
