Staying by a window is a pleasant experience. In the past, people simply adored window spaces. They created various attractive scenes to surround the window, such as sitting in a bay window or getting sunlight in a glazed alcove. A hole in the wall is not just for letting air and light in, but an essential element that has numerous spatial qualities.

What is the role of window space and how can this particular depth in a room evoke activity? “Window room” is an approach to re-conceptualize the space by the window. It creates an experience, which stimulates your senses and offers a comfortable space of its own. “Window room” could appear anywhere by the openings.
