“More Sky” Window Turns Into Balcony To Give Small Apartments Outdoor Experience

Argentinian architect Aldana Ferrer Garcia has created an extending window concept that allows apartment-dwellers to enjoy the sky from their oft-cramped quarters. The “More Sky” windows all swing or otherwise extend out from the wall to create cozy seated alcoves.

Garcia writes that the project “provides visual relief, access to sunlight and fresh air for small apartments” and is a response to “current needs in densely populated cities.”

This is such a great idea. I have always wanted a way to look at the night sky from my bedroom and this would be an answer. Brilliant!

THESE ARE ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! I think this architect has hit on a highly desired accessory for anyone regardless of the type of abode they are living in. I hope he patents the idea and design - I'd have a few in a heartbeat!

My thoughts exactly. If everybody did it in a block you wouldn't see much sky!

I love it but wouldn't sit in it . It would be nice to put a beautiful plant & have natural light come in.

Cool idea, but this certainly could end badly. Just wait till some drunken couple tries to have sex on it. And you thought "Titanic" was tragic...
