Dan- thanks for the thoughts... The windows face north, and at the back of the room not shown in the picture are windows that are higher up and open.
The condo is on a hill so the windows catch a breeze and then the higher windows draw the air through, up & out. We take pride in designs that are both functional, sustainable and hopefully aesthetically pleasing!

Plus, the cat/dog can get in and out without a pet door!

Although we have used them on othrr projects, There is not a rainwater collection system here. A steel edge keeps the gravel in place.

Yes. Venting is the reason. The condo is on a hill and the breezes come
Up and in. Also, an added benefit is to keep
Site lines open and clear. But mostly it was done for ventilation.

Depending on your decorative style there are plenty of window treatments to choose from. You may prefer valances that only cover the top of the windows, or you may prefer long drapery in modern panels. Motorized window screens are also an option, and are very modern.

Here are a few modern window treatment idea books to give you some ideas:

They are a standard commercial storefront system. The operable units are Gherkin. The sliders (not shown) are Fleetwood.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Shabby Nest added this to Let the Sun Shine In
Contemporary architecture lends itself perfectly to window walls broken only by the casings needed to house the glass panes.
Scheer & Co. added this to Expand Your View with Picture Windows
Picture windows are as much about the view out as they are about the view in. If you go the picture window route, consider carefully the look you want to present to the outside world.
Rachel Grace added this to Renovation Detail: The Awning Window
This modern Texas home is located on a hill, and the low awning windows allow for breezes to come up and in, increasing ventilation. The window layout also allows for an unobstructed view.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Cool Architecture for Hot Summers
The air that's lower to the ground is going to be cooler. So having some awning windows down low that can capture this air will keep the house interior cooler.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Which Window for Your World?
Awning windows are a favorite of architects and designers trying to achieve a wall of large glass sheets with a minimum frame and where fresh air venting is desired or required. A classically contemporary setup is the large fixed glass panel set above an awning window that is kept low in the wall. This setup allows for expansive, unobstructed views to the outside while making sure that it's possible to get fresh air into the room.Cost. Awning windows will be much the same price point as casement windows. Depending on size, features and materials, expect to pay about $300 to $500 for an awning window.
Design With Science added this to 6 Design Ideas for Happy Pets
4. Let in sounds and scents. Animals rely on smells and sounds more than humans do. To let them feel safe, having open windows allows them to hear and smell what's lurking in their surroundings.5. Include places for exercising. Cats enjoy climbing on cat trees, shelves, furniture, anything that allows movement and elevates them off the floor. Small dogs enjoy being able to run down long halls without slipping and sliding, so add carpeting when possible.

Mercedes Because the windows surround the entire room and go from floor to ceiling, there is a direction connection to nature. Although you are inside the people living in the home want to still feel surrounded by nature and keep that light, open, airy feeling.
