Moving Balcony / Balcony Design

Moving Balcony
Moving Balcony

Balcony is a place to enjoy the outdoors when we are indoor. However, many balconies of apartments are in the shadow of other balconies above.

Moving Balcony could be moved horizontally along the slide rail by residents when they want to enjoy the sunshine. It also helps plants on the balcony to absorb more sunshine. Meanwhile, the doors will be locked to ensure safety when the balcony moves away.
