Bloomframe is the innovative window that morphs magically into a balcony at the touch of a button. This revolutionary and multi-award-winning design offers inhabitants of apartments, offices and hotels the ultimate flexible living environment: an insulated picture window one minute and a fresh, open balcony the next, cleverly adding vital space to compact interiors and bringing the outdoors in. The unique balcony is engineered by French manufacturer Kawneer France. It consists of tough all-weather materials and controlled by a smooth electronic system. Kawneer France obtained all the necessary certifications to transform the prototype into a safe and affordable building component.

The Bloomframe is now in production with the first models destined for an apartment building in Amsterdam in The Netherlands. The designers at HofmanDujardin explain the Bloomframe window could soon become a familiar element of the modern cityscape as more architects, developers and builders realize its considerable functional and aesthetic benefits.

The Bloomframe® window is playing an essential role in the positive evolution of our cities, encouraging us to re-think and improve interior space options. Bloomframe® helps us live better
