Thai Traditional Filtering [246]

This traditional window solves filtering by means of very low-tech, precarious materials and constructive forms. What's so special about it is that there is no glass. The exterior elements are four independent horizontal pivoting shutters that also count with a horizontal pivoting louvered blind. The intermediate part has a handrail and in the interior there is usually some kind of thin curtain.
