Thank you to LSA Architects for expanding on the ribbon windows. I can see how they would be beneficial if the view isn’t great and a degree of privacy is required. However I do remember, in a previous home, I had a similar dilemma but because of the walls proximity to a neighbouring boundary and property building regs restricted the size of the window in meters squared. The reason explained was down to fire safety. I cannot remember the dimensions but it wasn’t all that much. Certainly not as big as the windows in the above photos. I would suggest that it would be prudent to check with building regs before opening up a large expanse of glass in a similar location.
