Those are venting transom windows. The brand is Weathershield.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here, hopper-style windows are used as transoms to provide ventilation without compromising security. Before ordering windows, think about how you will install the transom above the door. Will there be a space in between, trimmed out as in this picture? If you plan to mull the transom window directly to the top of the door, make sure your salesperson knows and provides a factory trim to cover this joint. Or better yet, have the factory mull the door and transom together. This connection can be a tricky one to make on the job.

Like I said, if he dining windows (2nd row) can open, great. If one can open, that's fine, but if none can open, that's OK too. If not, I will use the utility room for kitchen air flow.

Awning. Pros- Subtle ventilation, simple, brings in fresh air, cannot access from the outside. Cons- you could forget to close it, hard to open and close since they are high up. This would suit an office well, or a kitchen.

Awning Windows Pros- Can have them open while it is raining outside. Also provide lots of ventilation. Cons- Awning windows have a tendency of getting stuck or something going wrong, although they are usually cheap to fix. I would use this window in a basement that needed ventilation.

I like the Awning Windows in this picture. My dream house would have a greenhouse and a pool room with these windows at the top. In the greenhouse it would provide air filtration and moisture. For the pool room, it would help to get rid of the steam and heat of the pool/hot tub in the colder months and allow for a nice breeze during the summer.
