The Weekend House

windows become landscape paintings

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here is the view from that horizontal window, perfectly framing the horizon and vista for someone seated at the table.
This view functions as a living panoramic landscape painting and reinforces many of the previously discussed concepts. It’s also a great example to illustrate proportion. To be considered a sliver or ribbon window, I suggest a 3:1 width-to-height ratio at a minimum. If you’re looking for more of a sliver and have the room, use a ratio of 5:1 and up. This particular window nicely correlates to a 3:1 proportion. Using anything less will appear more rectangular than horizontal, and it will be difficult to achieve the effects we’ve been discussing.
