A picture window combined with casement or double-hung windows on both sides of the picture window placed at 30- or 45-degree angles. The bay window extends past the exterior of the building and may have a roof system, head and seat boards, and/or edge banding.
A window that projects out from the main wall. It may cover more than one storey, and may be curved, square, or canted.(Illustration from A.J. Downing, The Architecture of Country Houses, 1850, showing a canted bay window in the Gothic style with crenellations)
THREE OR MORE WINDOWS, PROJECTING FROM A BUILDING AT 30 OR 45-DEGREE ANGLES, AS ONE UNIT. NORMALLY, THE CENTER WINDOW IS A PICTURE WINDOW AND THE SIDE WINDOWS ARE EITHER VERTICAL SLIDERS (DOUBLE HUNG TILT) OR CASEMENT WINDOWS.
A window placed in a projection of an exterior wall of a building is called a bay window when the wall projection extends all the way down to a corresponding projection of the foundation. In plan view, the wall projection may be rectangular, polygonal or segmental (curved). See also: Windows.
An arrangement of three or more individual window units, attached in such a way as to project from the building at various angles. In a three unit bay, the center section is normally fixed with the end panels operable as single hung or casements.
Window, divided into three sections, that curves outward in an arc, extending the window area out from the wall, so that it gives a room a larger appearance. Since they are supported from the wall or floor and usually don't extend to the roof line, they need their own roof projection from the wall. Ready made bay windows come in pre-assembled components that are easily installed into a wall opening. Also called a bow window.
A stunning picture window combination that extends outside the house and is flanked on either side by operating casement or double-hung tilt windows placed at 30-, 45- or 90-degree angles. Available with head and seat boards.
A bay window is a combination of three windows that stick out from the wall of the house, with the middle window parallel to the house. The other windows are set at 30- to 45-degree angles, connecting the front window to the house.
The combination of three windows that stick out from the wall of the house, with the middle window parallel to the house is called a bay window. The other windows are set at 30- to 45-degree angles, connecting the front window to the house.
A bay window is made up of three or more windows. The side or flanker units project out from the building in 30, 45, or 90 degree angles. The center is parallel with the building wall and is made up of one or more windows. All the units can be stationary, operating, or any combination of the two. Typically, the center section is stationary, while the side units are operating.
