Prepare To Be Amazed - This Window Becomes a Balcony!

Kawneer, a part of Alcoa Building and Construction Systems, a 'leading supplier of architectural systems, services and building products to theEuropean, North American and North African construction industries', has designed an innovative window system that doubles as a balcony, providing luxury while saving space!

Beginning as a large glass pane, much like a simple floor-to-ceiling window, the 'Bloomframe' then folds outwards along a reinforced joint to create a see-through (and hopefully sturdy!) balcony. The innovative design allows for space-saving within the domicile and enables residents to enjoy the benefits of a balcony without upsetting the external lines of the building.

Currently in the final stages of engineering development and testing, the unit is expected to be available to construction projects 'soon'.
