Floating Windows

In modern architecture special designs which offer less profile surface in the view become increasingly important. A more and more frequently occurring form of such a construction is the so-called “Floating Window” in a curtain wall, where the frame of a window performs a glass-bearing role for the adjacent fields. Such floating windows can now be easily embedded via standard insertions in the input of elements.
