Architect Aldana Ferrer Garcia’s unique folding window
reconnects urban dwellers with the great outdoors
Life in the urban jungle of Brooklyn, New York, can be short on opportunities to relax under the open sky. Architect Aldana Ferrer Garcia has created an ingenious window system that allows the user to sit in the window and literally
‘hang out’ with the elements.
More Sky is based on a traditional window design with
one crucial difference: it folds out into a kind of chaise
longue with a transparent cover providing protection
from the weather. ‘It’s about creating a transitional
space between indoors and out,’ Garcia says. ‘Imagine
feeling relaxed in your own private space but getting
all the natural light from outside above your head.
Imagine being warm and dry while looking at the
raindrops falling on your head.’ ▼
