window size to ceiling height2

If cost is an issue, you could go 2700 in the more public areas of the house and lower in the private/utility areas. Just make sure the two heights are not next to each other!

If you want the full effect of high ceilings you should have your windows at a taller head height. Otherwise your ceilings won't have the same impact you are after. Standard 2.1m high windows would not look good.
We have a split level living/dining/kitchen with 2.7m - 3m ceilings. Our internal doors are 2.4m while our windows go all the way to the ceiling with a shadow line cornice.
Our other rooms have 2.4m doors and 2.4m head heights for the windows.
It is important to consider the head heights of your windows and doors so there is consistency within each room. However 2.7m internal doors are non standard and look disproportionate. It could look better to have standard doors and window heights but then add highlight windows above them to make the most of the space.

I definitely agree with you there. 1300 high windows from the floor is too high. It would make the house feel very claustrophobic because you wouldn't get the open feeling…
