What Houzz contributors are saying:
This home near Toronto shows masterful consideration of fenestration design in a modern context. The layout of the windows and their internal divisions are well-ordered and clearly play a central role in the design composition, the large window expanses balancing nicely against the smaller windows of the more private areas of the home.Doors and WindowsAfter that initial choice of exterior wall material, fenestration (the arrangement of windows and doors on the exterior faces of a building) is the next most important aspect to consider. The size and placement of windows and doors, their finishes and how they are divided (casement, double-hung, arrangement of muntins) play a huge role in the overall impression of a home’s exterior.
Here's another project where the interior glow is accentuated by the dark exterior; the large glass walls arising from the modern design (and having all the lights on for the photo shoot) accentuate the effect.
