Room addition - What to do with window openings

Our house had an addition added on the back of the house before we bought it. We are currently updating the house. We have removed paneling and also removed the old windows that used to be at the back of the house before the addition was built. Now there are just 3 large holes in the wall where the windows used to be. I like having it "open" so you can see in the back room, but really don't know what I could do with these openings. Build them up 1/2 way up so the openings are not so large?

Anyone have any creative ideas?

All is appreciated!

I have seen similar openings framed up and shelving installed in them, left open enough that people can see through to the other side around the knick-knacks in them.

Also saw them walled up on one side and made into book shelves, or a recessed area for a flat screen.

How about an aquarium in one that is viewable from both sides?

endless possibilities.
