In a perfect world, all our windows would look onto distant views of sunset beaches. I recently saw an East London (Homerton) flat that was being sold whereby the view from the only window in the living space was to the back of a parapet and drain some 300mm away [insert image]. That view looked positively macroscopic. It wasn’t the lack of distance here that is the problem… more the tedium of the visual content: drain membrane barely embracing plaster. So WHAT_windows recognise, as in this Ponsonby Villa in NZ, that even seeing something 1m from your master bedroom still could be something good… personally I would add some vines to the fence. Or get some street art graf treatment.
