Insulation Help Needed!

last month

I have this area in my basement over the window where it looks like there is no insulation between the interior and exterior of the house. What do you recommend we insulate it with? I'm looking to insulate the space between the beam and the outer wall above the window. Our basement is heated, so I don't think I need to insulate the underside of the floor.

The white cylinder is insulation around a heating pipe, that then goes to the kitchen above. The basement has thick stone walls to the top of the window (shown in the photo) and we have wood shingles on the outside above the window. The house is about 100 years old.
