Windows for a child's-eye view.

He knows it's his room by the windows.

In designing a second-story addition for owners Eva and Don Bay, Santa Monica architect Barbara Coffman used a group of small windows to give their son's 12-foot-square room a sense of fun and an illusion of greater space, virtues that should endure even when the occupant has grown.

To blend with the style of the house, Coffman chose four-pane, top-hinged "awning" windows. Eric can operate them, but for safety then can be rigged to opne only partway.
