Window villa 1,25x1,4 optically error?
We are currently building an 11m wide villa at the front.
There are, as usual, 5 windows, of which 4 windows are 1.25x1.4 (W/H).
Now my question is, are the windows too wide? They seem very square and we haven't been able to draw them well.
Does anyone have any experience with these or similar wide windows?
What's wrong with that? For a more modern urban villa, square windows are fine. If you want something more country house style, it's better to split one window into two to stretch the facade upward.
I assume the width is determined by the floor plan? Then leave it as it is and don't worry about it unnecessarily. Later in the front garden there will be bushes and trees that will create additional harmony with the facade and will support or hide something.
Don't sacrifice light and quality inside for the sake of appearance.
Take all windows with a standard frame width of 110 cm. The advantage is that you can then buy ready-made 0.85 wide pleated blinds for little money, and they fit.
You are building a regular house, and most likely the size of the windows is determined by the interior layout. Don't stress yourself out. If the windows match your floor plan from the inside, that's fine.
