i have louvers that are a labor to clean, so i don't know that i would have them overhead where they might be even more difficult to clean unless they are inside another roof? it looks great, but i'm not sure about the practicality.
i wonder if the doors to the dining room are like transition lenses?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Making Prefab Work for All
VB: What requirements did they have for this house? Was it difficult to fulfill those requirements with the limitations of a pre-fab? MK: Prefabrication wasn’t difficult for fulfilling the requirements. We designed the modules to offset from one another as a way to create an H-shape plan and 2 courtyards that the home connects with. The boundary between the interior and exterior are also blurred through NanaWall glass doors that allow the house to open up completely to the gardens.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Give Me an ‘H’
Large, glazed, operable door openings make the site connections even more apparent in this house. It’s hard to imagine a home more far removed from a 15th-century English manor house, yet all of the benefits of the latter have been conferred to this modern-day incarnation.More: Design Workshop: The Case for Big Overhead Doors
