What Houzz contributors are saying:
What this ideabook does not promote is fully glazing the exterior walls of a building, no matter how much beauty one may find in such architecture or the views it enables. Depending on window shades and other devices, glass boxes overheat during the day from too much direct sunlight and lose heat at night, due to the large expanses of glass and their low R-values (insulating values) compared to solid walls.Rather, we'll move from big to small, from the site and house orientation to means of selectively admitting sunlight and trapping that heat.
