Houzz is the new way to design your home.
lso consider adding clerestory windows between rooms. In this project by Furman + Keil Architects, the windows transfer daylight from the bedroom into the adjacent room.
The 440 House in Palo Alto, Calif., designed by Anne Fougeron, uses channel glass to achieve translucency in one of the volumes. The system is made up of pieces of cast glass in a U-shape that are structural (meaning they can support themselves and span relatively large distances for glass). Set side by side they create translucent walls with a pinstripe appearance.
A horizontal band of transom windows set high up in the wall provides privacy while forcing the view upward. This is an great way to capture light and a view when what's directly outside isn't something you really want to look at.
