Marvin Introduces Innovative, Unique Nook Window

As a Minneapolis replacement window contractor, we’ve been paying attention to some of the current trends in home design, particularly those that relate to windows.  In addition to the focus on maximizing energy efficiency in homes, two stand out to us:  Bringing more of the outside in via maximizing natural light, and creating comfortable spaces indoors.  With most of us spending more time at home, these two concepts are particularly important.  Marvin’s new ‘Skycove’ windows fit the bill for both.

This window design literally projects out into the open air.  It’s available in four different sizes that can create up to 20′ feet of usable space in your home without adding on.  And it brings in light from four different directions.  The seating area can accommodate two people comfortably, yet its design also provides an intimate space for one individual to curl up with a good book or just to enjoy the view.  And can you imagine star-gazing at night from the comfort of your home?

Shown below are two different ideas for using this innovative window design.  (Photos courtesy of Marvin.)


Some of the important features of this window include:

  • Insulated seating platform
  • Slimline frames that offer minimal obstruction of view
  • Strong steel structure can safely support several people
  • Slight slope to top glass sheds debris and water
  • Flush glazing prevents pooling of water

Perhaps there’s a spot in your home where the new Marvin SkyCove window would be perfect.  Maybe you’ve got an old picture window you were thinking of replacing.  If this incredible window design appeals to you, we’d be happy to help you figure out how to make it work in your home.  Our replacement window technicians are standing by, waiting to schedule an in-home visit with you!  We serve the greater Minneapolis metro area, and we are THE replacement window company for the Twin Cities, and we are proud to be a Marvin Authorized Replacement Contractor!
