What Houzz contributors are saying:

"It's always sort of interesting when an architect has to convince a client that a wall of glass may not be the best decision," says Mitchell. "Even though you don't want to obstruct any part of the beautiful view, sometimes it's just not practical." Since the structure is an office most of the time, and is in extremely sunny Los Angeles, having an entire glass facade would have let in too much light during the day, making it unbearably hot inside.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Architect's Toolbox: The Open Corner Window
There is nothing in the way to impede the view while creating the next great piece of literature.
Scheer & Co. added this to Expand Your View with Picture Windows
I'm not sure how much work I'd actually get done sitting in front of this panoramic window in this writer's studio, but I might be highly inspired, so you never know...
Becky Harris added this to 12 Great Ways to Use Home Office Corners
Stretch a panoramic view. A desk in front of a corner window gets a vast, uninterrupted view.
