Would you really want to open a window to chaotic conditions outside the building? Excessive noise, bad weather conditions, dirty or even noisome air, unpleasant visual impressions… opening a window is not always to be recommended even in places where it may possible in agreeable climatic conditions. A climate envelope cannot work miracles, it cannot create a beautiful view or the perfect climate, but it offers protection against extreme climatic conditions and noise in the proximity and, assuming an appropriate architectural design, creates a pleasant oasis of peace and fresh air.
