10. The Innovative Design of The San Remo’s Window Help Regulate Temperature
As much as The San Remo was designed with aesthetics in mind, it also incorporates several innovative and useful fixtures. Several of the building’s windows are particularly noteworthy because they use metal casements that feature movable transoms above and below the principal windows: the upper transom swings out, while the lower one (also known as the hopper) swings in.
This design helps regulate temperature, and facilitates air circulation and ventilation. In addition, the split towers also allow more light and air to reach the pavement.
