Can you tell me the make of the clerestory windows, and what their dimensions are? Thanks.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

It's all about the juxtaposition of texture (the ladder like, narrow motif) and flow. A perfect focal point, especially in white-soft yet specific.
This residence by Austin, Texas's Alterstudio — which seems to love clerestories, based on this and the next two photos — uses windows above the kitchen to bring light into the dining/living area. This use is actually more aligned with the traditional definition of a clerestory (think of the kitchen and its roof as an aisle and the living room as the main space). Note the horizontal ladder-like louvers below the window; these cut down on direct sunlight into the space. A very well thought-out design.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Clerestory
The clerestory here is the space between the lower ceiling of the kitchen area and the higher ceiling of the main living space. A clerestory is typically filled with windows to let light into the interior while affording privacy and views of treetops and sky.

Clerestory - Pros: can be used where most normal windows would not fit, brings in lots of sunlight, doesn't affect privacy, very good for getting hot air out. Cons: This window would be used in: Lots of modern houses, in pretty much any room.

Clerestory - I don't really see a point in them besides to let in a lot of light and to make rooms almost look bigger. Cons would be that you probably wouldn't be able to clean them.

Clerestory pros- allow in the right amount of sunlight without over doing it. cons- windows do not open. These would be good to use in a basement or attic area.

Clerestory. Pros- It allows light to shine through, intruders are not able to enter. Cons- if the light was shining at a certain angle, it could get annoying. This would suit a fitness room, kitchen or bathroom nicely.
