We replaced the existing kitchen window with a tall steel fixed pane window with an opening vent at the base. This brings the greenery and light of the garden area inside and allows ventilation while the wind is up.
On the pool-side façade, we enlarged the existing opening and replaced the kitchen window with a Forman Brand steel sliding window that slides away completely inside a pocket in the wall. This creates a pass through outside bar area and extends the entertainment space.
