What’s in Sight?

Use of creative window frames and improved glass options are trending.

In the high-end luxury segment, window design is being driven by clients’ desire for the outside to be felt inside, says Karun Muthanna, Principal Architect, Arclain. “Consequently, we’ve used a lot of end-to-end windows of late. We used to do floor-to-ceiling windows of 7 ft or 7.6 ft height but now we’re doing seamless windows running from the end to end of the civil structure. This involves taking windows higher than what we did previously.”

In Mumbai and other metros, architects opt for large windows that offer uninterrupted views, affirms Neilesh Kenkare, Principal Architect, Arch-Aid, as does Ajeet Kumar Singh, Vice President, Contracts & Purchase, Alliance Group, who says, “Large windows such as wall-to-wall and floor-to-slab windows are trending in the residential apartments segment to enhance the architectural design of the property.”

Material innovations have furthered this design trend. “Earlier, large windows had a handicap in the sense that the bigger you got, the heavier were the profiles,” Muthanna points out. “But now, even large windows are made with sleek profiles, encouraging this trend.”
