The deep window frames offer some protection from the often harsh Taipei sun. At times the glazing pulls deeper into the building to create a balcony within the frame, or an additional perforated handrail extends to create a floating balcony. Shading and mechanical systems are integrated within the frames for consistent fenestration.
