Window company Velux Cabrio created a beautiful balcony skylight hybrid for modern homes. While skylights are an elegant way to allow natural light to fill rooms, this particular contraption lets home-owners enjoy the fresh air as well.

The balcony skylight, which is called 'Cabrio' is easily installed to provide users with 180 degrees of an outdoor view. The product contains two sections. The top section is a "standard GPL top-hung roof window that opens for ventilation." The bottom section is an "integrated banister, which can be pushed outwards for creating balcony-like space to stand."

The system can be easily opened and closed in the same fashion as a regular window. Additionally, this window is made from safety glass to reduce the risk of any injury that could possibly happen.
