Projected windows, also called awning windows, project out from a room, from the top. They are best used in places where width is greater than height.
Many people place projected windows higher up along a wall to allow cooler air in; this also provides more privacy. For this reason, they are very useful in bathrooms and restrooms. You’ll find them in kitchens as well, where ventilation is essential.
Projected windows can be opened with a crank. We’ve seen some interesting combinations of projected windows side by side or atop one another.
