In our cramped up urban homes it’s almost impossible to retain a connection with nature…or is it? Argentinian architect Aldana Ferrer Garcia designed the More Sky window as a creative experiment. More Sky is a designer window concept that expands and attempts to replace the traditional windows we are so used to. The extending window unit allows for surreal views of the sky, and in fact, forms a mini balcony!
Designer: Aldana Ferrer Garcia
Garcia says 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”, and More Sky is indeed a relief from our often squeezed up homes. The window comes in three styles, Hopper Niche, Casement Niche and Awning Niche.
The Hopper Niche forms an accordion-like structure, allowing you to snuggle into it and relax with your favorite book!
The Casement Niche provides enough space for you to sit cross-legged, and take in some fresh sunlight and morning views.
Whereas the Awning Niche folds out like an awning, allowing you to lean out and take in your surroundings.
Though designed specifically for Brooklyn’s construction and regulations, More Sky is the kind of design that can find immense functionality all over the world. It’s a concept that allows you to simply lay back, reconnect with the world around you, and to be honest I wouldn’t mind one in my home!
