15 Awesome Examples Where Windows Follow The Roofline

 

There is something so satisfying and calming about following straight lines that match up perfectly with other straight lines. Either they fit together just right or they run completely parallel to each other and create a sense of internal calmness. Now imagine how much more this feeling would be amplified if you were gazing out a window.

Today we’re combining the two and giving you 15 examples of windows that perfectly follow the line of the roof and help you relax as you gaze out at the surroundings.
