She uses existing window mechanisms and promotes a healthier and happier home life by the interaction of the users with the outside. Explore sunlight in a unique way![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
The collection contains three types:
the Hopper Window
the Casement Window
the Awning Window
In open position they provide a temporary sunroom with a seating place which can be folded away.
Interesting is that the project was just conceptual but turned into a real project. Ferrer Garcia is currently in the process of bringing More Sky to the market. The project could be a great solution for more access to sunlight and fresh air for small apartments. It responds to current needs in densely populated cities.
I actually would really want to have the Hopper Window in my apartment. I can imagine me feeling relaxed in my own room but getting all the natural light from above my head and being warm and dry while looking at the raindrops falling from the sky. Imagine, resting on the windowsill, having a cup of coffee while looking at people walk by on the street. It could be a small place to think and relax, where the view is unique and temporary at the same time. It is only used for that purpose and when I don’t need it anymore I can put it away. Even though the concept sounds great, the only concern is on the comfort of the seating place and the structure and support of the window.
