5 Hong Kong well established and up-and-coming architects talk about the important of windows to them for space crafting

Given the scale and strength of monsoon weather is getting more unpredictable by year, Hong Kong wealth is starting to pay more attention to high quality window solutions.

Hong Kong has been claimed to be the most expensive residential city in worldwide for years. Although this city does not lack of luxurious mansions and buildings, many are fitted with basic, low-quality windows that do little to withstand typhoons and to give the interiors enough of protection.

JS Aluminium Window, Hong Kong luxurious window solution provider invited 5 reputable architects to tell us why window is an important tool for space-making and mood-setting apart from its high performance.

“With our background as architects, we approach our interiors, emphasising utilising natural daylight and shadows to create spaces. Windows are fundamental to the architectural setting since they are situated at the threshold between inside and outside, constantly informing our perception of the external sceneries and our tactile experiences of internal material finishes when they are brought to life by natural daylight”

“Not purely a visual medium, windows alter the way we feel space and experience our home. Simultaneously protecting from and connecting to the elements, fenestration presents the ability to transform the spaces we inhabit. Through operability and maneuverability, they become key touch points, where the quality of the system is felt through the weighted effortlessness of their movement.”

“We see window as a spatial device that defines the atmosphere of a space. Be it a narrow slit opening that brings in a glance of landscape at a meditation space, or a mirage like impressionist painting through textured glass, the window is performing actively in the creation of the emotion of a space.”

“Picture window invites us to take in a view that is thoughtfully framed, from a scenic moment to a time-lapse of urban dynamics. The awareness of time gives us hints to adapt our day with timely events or functions. Our interior layouts could be composed from inside out, and harmoniously with windows outside in, dramatizing a façade with a montage of indoor life and lights at night…”

“A window gives orientation. It’s a point of connection to the elements. Is there a dramatic view? What is the quality of the light? Is it loud outside? Do we want to draw air in?
Modern windows give us greater creative freedom in selecting which elements to draw in and which to keep out. It affords us greater confidence to go bigger and to create more meaningful connections.”
