Whether a huge picture window or a group of smaller windows, they can make a huge impact on the lighting. Even when there’s no view, windows positioned high on the wall can still breathe light into a room. In a situation where the houses are right up against each other, putting windows up higher will give you a view of the trees and sky instead of your neighbor’s house.

Each individual home has a couple of special moments when the light comes in at a certain angle or a certain view is at its best. If the house designed with that in mind, you will get to enjoy those moments. One way to maximize that may be to utilize windows in the stairwell.
