Contemporary window designs on a skyscraper.

Here in New York City, our buildings date back across many historical eras, so it’s no surprise that we have a wide range of architectural styles across our boroughs. Every time period brought us different types of building facades, each with its own kinds of windows. In today’s blog, we want to go over some of the window designs we find in Brooklyn and other boroughs, covering how these designs enhance the buildings we live and work in.

Round Windows

Take a look at any grade-school drawing of a house, and you’ll likely see rectangular or square windows. But what about round ones? These add a high level of interest, stoking the imagination since they can remind us of travel with their ship-style portal shape. Whether perfectly round or oval, these windows bring beauty and style to any NYC home. They offer a unique way of looking at the world!

Picture Windows

With the sweeping views of our iconic skyline and landmarks, big picture windows make sense. They also work well in homes and businesses that look out onto natural surroundings. These windows provide numerous well-being benefits, serving as great spots to relax at, de-stress, unwind, and get ready for what the rest of the day has to offer.


In addition to providing a view to the sky, skylights enable us to see the surrounding trees, buildings, and more. They are an excellent source of additional lighting, working great to illuminate dark areas, and they fit well in both contemporary and more traditional building styles.

Stained Glass

Adding a splash of color and an artistic flair to any structure, stained glass windows are found in everything from churches to libraries, and from businesses to historic homes. They add an undeniable touch of elegance, and depending on the artist’s goal, they can also bring a sense of whimsy, inspiration, or chic to any location.
