Clerestory windows are an elegant way to bring daylight into a room
while maintaining privacy or function. Or a way to get natural
light into a living room that’s located in the center of the home.
Or the perfect answer to maintaining the mid-century-modern design
aesthetic for an existing home but raising the roof to give the
rooms a bit more height and light.
It allows the building to open up to the views of the sky bringing
the sun and moon into the house, reinforcing the connection with
nature and the surrounding landscape. The clerestories add a touch
of uniqueness by helping capture the views of the Mountains and
lush greenery it sits amidst creating an experience which would
have been impossible to create through ordinary fenestrations.

No matter how well you use different layers of artificial lighting,
nothing compares to the freshness and brightness ushered in by
natural light. Clerestory windows bring unhindered natural light
all day long and offer a compromise of sorts between traditional
windows and skylights. Clerestory windows between public living
area and private bedrooms bring light into the bedoom without
compromising on privacy.
Getting the Direction Right
The most important part of installing clerestory windows in your
home is their orientation and the height at which you wish to place
them. Clerestory windows on the north help in cooling down the home
and are perfect for residences in hotter regions of the world. It
is here that your home would not be exposed to highest amount of
direct sun light and heat even while bathing the indoors in natural
light. On the other hand, place them on the southern side of your
home to bring more heat indoors. Adding a low-emissivity coating to
these windows helps cut back on heat loss, giving your home a
