0 The 'More SKY' Windows Design Project by Aldana Ferrer Garcia

What a great design idea if you live in a small house or small space!

The Dubai Design Week, held from 26 – 31 October, 2015 had a host of creative designs and innovative projects under their 'Global Grad Show' exhibition which features some of the most innovative projects from world's leading design schools.

The expansive exhibition, curated by Brendan Mcgetrick, is housed within the Dubai Design District (d3), spotlighting 50 projects from 10 universities under 6 themes: construction, health, home, memory, play and work and among them was the 'more sky' thesis project created by Argentinian architect Aldana Ferrer Garcia - an experiment in expanding and rethinking the limits of assumed architectural space.

More Sky is a cozy corner for the home that provides visual relief, access to sunlight and fresh air for small apartments. As an attempt to understand the threshold between ID and architecture, this project is conceived as an object and a space at the same time, responding to current needs in densely populated cities.
