Architect and designer Aldana Ferrer Garcia, has created More Sky Window, a variety of window concepts that allow people living in apartments to experience more sunlight in a unique way. Aldana says, “More Sky is a cozy corner for the home that provides visual relief, access to sunlight and fresh air for small apartments. As an attempt to understand the threshold between ID and architecture, this project is conceived as an object and a space at the same time, responding to current needs in densely populated cities.
”Born from an ambition to provide a healthier and more comfortable living experience for inhabitants of urban areas, ‘more sky’ is a replacement window system that reconnects city dwellers with natural elements. primarily designed for brooklyn’s construction and regulations — but able to be adapted to locations across the globe — the project replaces existing window niches. an expandable structure slides outward to provide additional views of the surrounding landscape. three configurations each provide a cozy corner for visual relief, access to sunlight and fresh air. when in use, the module creates a temporary sunroom, or a space to relax, read and meditate. For metropolis dwellers, the moving module reestablishes a relationship with the outside world, in turn reshaping the connection with the world around us.
