Sverre Fehn’s fragmented Windows [243]

Norrkoping House windows have no solar protection, but we bring them here for their exquisite fragmentation. These corners through where the interior spaces overlook the exterior are formed by a wooden carpentry dividing 10 glasses. Pivoting doors swing on an eccentric vertical axis to overlap the perpendicular brick facade. This element has a small vertical leave that can be open for ventilation. In the corner, the glass overlaps outwards, generating two flat shelves for objects or plants.
