I think the owner will eventually put a pull down drape after moved in.

It needs lighting....

After 1st first break in they will make adjustments.

I think they wanted more light.  Usually, though, when you have a door like this, you have a 2nd one for safety and privacy and can leave one open during the day when you're come.
