What Houzz contributors are saying:

Like hallways, stairs can sometimes be buried within a plan or for various reasons not be given any windows. These vertical spaces are great for windows and skylights, since light can filter into adjacent spaces and the chimney effect can draw up warm air through operable skylights (more on that in a future Ideabook on passive cooling).This example shows not only the benefits of the window and skylight, but also that the room on the right is borrowing light from the stair and hall via clerestory windows.
