Initially, this was done in an artisanal way, with the emergence of the same market relations, entire organizations appeared that deal with the glazing of the exposed elements of the facade. However, in the calculation of thermal and insolation characteristics, as well as ventilation and infiltration of elements and premises of most commercial buildings, this intervention was not provided for the enclosing structures.
The article considers a number of operational characteristics of living rooms and kitchens, which can be affected by similar changes in the design solution of a multiapartment apartment house. Here we consider mainly the series of houses in operation, the construction of the 60s 90s, in the coming years, not subject to renovation.
