The effect oversized windows have on an office is increased productivity and general wellness. Windows in an office space are typically treated as an afterthought. This may be a problem because windows are difficult to renovate or change. Oversized windows offer an abundance of natural light to the office space boosting morale and efficiency. Larger windows and tinting will add another element to the space. To produce their best work, employees need to feel comfortable especially with temperature, atmosphere, noise levels, and lighting.
Office design is dedicated to creating the best working atmosphere ensuring employees are comfortable, in good morale, and productive.

Look for natural lighting
It is important to take note of the amount of natural light throughout the office. As you observe the natural light, also note the office design utilized to highlight the available natural light. The placement of workstations is one way to feature natural light. Employee will benefit from the workstation placement by enjoying the natural light. Another option is the use of glass or transparent partitions to allow the natural light to be unobstructed.
Architectural Details Todays
Architectural glazing is typically tempered or laminated, usually not both. Commonly, the windows are tempered or toughened. The standard thickness of the glass is 6mm. The windows usually contain two panes of glass with approximately 10mm of insulating (argon or krypton) gas between the panes. This may save you a considerable amount on your energy bill. Other energy saving methods may include low emissivity coatings on the outer pane. The location of the building is also important to consider for the types of strengthening used for the glass.
The height and location of the building will dictate the heat strengthening required of the windows. Low floors do not require as much heat strengthening as a higher floor. The higher floors need a full temper to avoid any damage or breakage. These extra strengthening measures are beneficial to avoid broken glass raining down to the pedestrians below.
Many modern and new office skyscrapers are featuring glass façades and glass curtain walls. Glass curtain walls contain tempered glass, insulating glass, and laminated glass. The glass is glazed to be able to withstand a particular quantity of horizontal load or puncture force, for example a person leaning on the glass.
The standard glass curtain wall for skyscrapers, in a moderate climate, is two 1/4" thick panes of glass with a 1/2" insulated spacer. The first glass is coated with a low-E coating.
