Blinds between glass

I wonder if anyone has any experience with these double glazed windows with integral blinds, I think they're otherwise known as blinds between the glass.

Too many windows?

Thanks for your comments HillsBuilds. I guess having the two larger windows doesn't look too bad, and doesn't look like something is just missing in the middle.

Or maybe an offset…

I think I can put all the clothes storage / drawers/ tall boy etc behind the wall behind the bed, but I agree with the wall space, and also nowhere…

Thank you ddaroch and algernon for your further constructive feedback.
I'm in Melbourne, so completely random seasons! The deck 'alfresco' is not covered, as it is the house's private open space.…

Thank you Hillsbuilds and EvokeArchitects for your constructive comments.

Should it be taking so long.... (Burbank)

Hi all,
Just thought I'd get some feedback on my house build so far.

Thanks for your comments joanna.
But what constitutes the front of the house? Are there regulations concerning that? So if I turn the plot around and go for one of the…

So the building envelope I gave to the builders looked like this:
