A Danish company has come up with a way to transform boring old rooftop windows into tiny balconies. Velux figured out a mechanism that turns roof window into a balcony in just few seconds. It is both creative and functional! In one word, it is genius!

This technology, opens a new window of opportunities that gives architecture and design a whole different perspective, taking it to a more advanced level.

If you ever wanted to add a balcony to your home, without having to spend too much time and money on it, Danish company Velux has the perfect solution for you.

They created a window that can shapeshift into a balcony, giving you the perfect spot for a morning coffee or late night romantic stargazing. The simple mechanism works by flipping up the top section of the window and then extending the bottom, which folds out with railing on both sides, forming a tiny balcony. Magic!

Unfortunately, there is one downside to it, and that is the fact that these windows can only be installed on homes with certain roof angles, so it’s not adjustable for everyone.

The sole process of transforming from a flat rooftop window into a balcony at the push of a button is set to become a defining feature of an entire apartment building, making it a modernistic conception.

Just imagine, you press a button and something useful pops out of the wall to offer you more space and functionality. The balcony looks like an ordinary window, except with an opaque metal panel where the lower pane of glass would normally be. The whole process takes about fifteen seconds to complete, and the result is mesmerizing.
