Big Window – Fail
It’s not as though this sort of information is secret knowledge. . . . . I would have thought all architects would be aware of the importance of these sort of issues.

Here is why I think it’s a fail:
- Minimal privacy.
- Massive heat loss in winter meaning huge heating bills, or a house like a fridge.
- No solar benefit in the winter.
- Considerable heat gain in summer due to the poor insulation value of glazing.
Just in case you thought the purpose of the window was to take in a magnificent aspect . . . . . here is the view!
