The Large Picture Window On This House Was Designed To Maximize The Mountain And Valley Views

A modern house that features a large picture window that looks out onto the surrounding area.

Chevallier Architectes has designed a new house in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France, that features a remarkably large picture window that looks over the surrounding area.

A large picture window draws attention on this modern house.

The large black framed window not only provides spectacular views, but also acts as a contrasting element against the wood siding on the exterior of the home.

From inside the home, the large window perfectly frames the view of the neighboring houses, as well as the trees and nearby mountains.

Let’s take a look at the rest of the home…

More large windows are also featured throughout the home, while a glass railing allows for an unobstructed view from the balcony.
