Posted November 01, 2019 17:21:00 A Melbourne home with an auto window glass has gone from strength, to strength and now a windowless one.
Victoria’s new law allows for the construction of a window in all apartments, townhouses and detached houses.
It also allows for new construction to have an auto glass as long as it has a minimum of six square metres of space between the glass and the house.
The glass was originally designed to provide an alternative to a window for a single occupant in the house, but has become a home for people.
This has allowed the city’s biggest building owners to build new apartments and townhouses without having to buy or renovate.

Under the new rules, an apartment built with an electric or gas powered solar energy system will need to have a window or two in it, but they can be as small as five square metres.
In a recent article, the ABC’s Dan Smith reported on the growing number of apartments that had windows in the bedrooms and bedrooms in apartments.
“The number of residential buildings in Melbourne with a window is increasing,” Victorian Housing Minister Richard Wynne said.
“We’re seeing some of the larger developments with a glass frontage that’s been around for a long time and is very common in residential developments.”
The Victorian Government said it was aiming to have all apartments with a solar energy-powered system built by 2020.
The Government is planning to build an average of 10,000 new residential units over the next five years.
The Government said the law would also see new rental housing come into operation.
The Premier, Daniel Andrews, has said the Government would not allow people to buy the houses that have glass windows, saying they would not help people to afford to live in Melbourne.
“We have seen an increase in the number of people coming to Melbourne from overseas, particularly to Sydney,” Mr Andrews said.
Mr Andrews said the government was looking at the potential for a new market for these new homes and would consider how to manage them.
He said there were a number of factors that had led to this increase in demand, including increased costs, new supply from overseas and the availability of other options.
Victoria’s Government said a total of 1023 apartments were built in the city with solar-powered systems between April and June, compared with 4,569 built in 2020.
Of the total, about 6,000 were designed to be “windowless” apartments, meaning that windows can be raised or lowered.
About 3,400 residential properties are now built without a window, the Government said.
It said the number is expected to fall to 1,000 homes in 2020, before reaching its target of 5,000 in 2030.

Professor Scott Wilson said there was no question the market for renewable energy was growing.
As we move further and further away from fossil fuels, we will continue to see research in this area, and the demand for these things is just increasing.
But the Government is also planning to give a boost to the renewable energy sector by introducing the Renewable Energy Target, which would see the state’s electricity grid be upgraded from coal-fired power plants to solar and wind power.
According to the Government, the target will see the generation of more than 10,500 megawatts of renewable energy by 2020, compared to 4,000 megawatts today.
It will also see the renewable sector’s share of electricity generation in Victoria grow from 30 per cent to more than 45 per cent by 2020 and more than 90 per cent in 2050.
Vietnam is also in the process of getting a green grid, and will have a similar target.
Melbourne is one the biggest and most developed markets in Australia for renewable power, and has become the centre of a debate about the future of energy in Australia, as climate change and the growing power of wind, geysers and solar power make it more expensive to produce energy.
