DAYLIGHT 140 DESIGN
Top left: ‘Residents can enjoy the sky, or being warm and dry as
raindrops fall above their heads’ says Garcia
Top right: The hopper window in a typical Brooklyn brownstone
Above: The standard Hopper window comprises a single swinging
panel with telescopic cover and unfolding structural seat
Conceived as an attempt to reconnect city residents
with the natural elements, the window behaves as
a ‘parasitic module’ that can be used as a temporary
sunroom or a space to relax, read, meditate or simply
absorb much-needed vitamin D.
Developed in compliance with Brooklyn’s building
regulations, it is available in three configurations:
‘hopper’, ‘casement’ and ‘awning’. Garcia hopes the
system will be adapted for cities around the world.
