When we were at Bangkok last month, I happened to see this restaurant at the hotel where we stayed and this reminds me of my upcoming project in the house. I actually wanted to replace the concrete wall opposite our dining table with a tinted glass panel (similar to the photo above). This would be a a sliding glass panel where we can have a view of a pocket garden leading to our garage.
I was just thinking that it would be a good idea to create a nice view while we are having our meals at the dining area and also to provide a better ventilation for the house. Another purpose of which is to allow natural light to enter the house. If open, the glass panel would also allow some air to come in, therefore this would be a huge savings to our electric bills.
I would go for something's that beautiful and yet economical!
