Attic balcony windows

Heat rises, and there’s nothing worse than a sweltering room to make you miserable. This often renders attics useless in many houses, but as we recently saw on Dornob, company Fakro has found a way to solve that problem. They’ve created balcony windows for attic spaces that allow residents to open up the top floors of their homes and make them totally livable. The windows turn your pitched roof into a miniature balcony space with big rewards: all the light and air you can stand.
