We opted for large glazed openings in the environments to break the height scale of the environments, in addition, the double right foot of the living contributed to the idea of high ceilings throughout the house. Great gaps have been designed to favour lighting and natural ventilation, as it is a country with more rigorous winter, the frames have thermal insulation.
