It has polycarbonate sheets that are set in when the weather gets colder.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Generous windows create views to the main house and the valley on each side. Valdes avoided double-hung windows, since middle mullions often block sight lines. Instead, seamless windows and screens allow for a clear view. The windows are actually sheets of polycarbonate that are simply screwed in. During the summer, the clients unscrew the plastic sheets and store them under the pavilion, leaving it open. When the weather cools down, the clients reattach the sheets to keep things cozy.

This is a simple design that combines windows at the top with screens on the bottom. This would make sense for Highwind situation
