30 Modern Corner Windows
By Freshome.com - Interior Design & Architecture Magazine on Aug 05, 2012
We have gathered a list of 30 Modern Corner Windows to serve as inspiration for your future architectural project – either you start building from ground floor up or re-imagine your home in a much-needed remodel project. One of the most famous examples of widely used corner windows is Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater house and these features are reminiscent of the architect’s Usonian houses. Although left aside during the rush for more square footage, these houses inspired modern architects to re-establish a stronger connection to the landscape. Corner windows reduce the mass of the building, proving to be very helpful whenever sunlight is needed and can be captured from two different angles. Taking advantage of city skylines or forested hills, shorelines and mountainscapes, corner windows surprise the eye with a double portion of outdoors.
Depending on the structure and design of the residence, different frames can be used to re-imagine the views projected through the window. Enabling rooms to be in deeper visual connection with the surroundings, this atypical fenestration model can be fully transparent, embracing the corner with glass, or can cut lines in the panorama. Artistic displays can engage the view through a symmetric or asymmetric collection of frames shaping a corner window. These framed angled windows borrow textures from materials shaping the frames, while the frame less corner windows display uninterrupted scenes. Playing with these features can challenge creative minds to find adapted solutions for each contemporary building project. Photos below construct an inspiration storyboard – framed or frame less, corner windows are sure to provoke your imagination by offering a larger panoramic view and an interesting architectural detail.
