One unit of a building consisting of a series of similar units, usually window and door openings. Bracket A projecting member which supports or appears to support a load, usually at eaves or overhangs. Capital The topmost element of a column or pilaster. Classical Pertaining to the architecture of ancient Greece and Rome.
A compartment that serve as a unit of division in a building. in a Gothic cathedral the transverse arches and adjacent piers of the arcade divide the building into bays, the design of which is an architectural unit repeated in each bay. Illustration from St. Louis' RC
Buildings are often divided into repetitive spatial elements, or bays, defined by the space between two adjacent columns or other vertical supports.
Internal division of building marked by roof principals or vaulting piers.
A window, door, or other opening, comprising one visual division of an elevation or a facade. BEAM A principal horizontal structural member.
A division of a building defined by regular vertical features such as the' main timbers or windows.
a unit of a building marked by vaulting or roof compartments
A composite of three windows (double hung, casement or fixed), usually made up of a large center fixed unit and two flanking units at 30 or 45 degree angles to the wall.
Transversal spatial unit in a covered space. The bay contrasts with the nave which is longitudinal. In a hypostyle space, the bay corresponds to the division between two rows of columns set perpendicular to the axis of the entrance.
a compartment on a ship between decks; often used as a hospital; "they put him in the sick bay"
a compartment in an aircraft used for some specific purpose; "he opened the bomb bay"
Space limited by two adjacent weight-bearing structures (columns, pilasters etc.). In churches the bay is also an area of the nave defined by four adjacent columns or pilasters in facing pairs. Here, the bay generally has a cross vault ( * vault).
A major vertical division of a large, interior wall. There are usually more than one, such as a nave that is divided into seven bays (fig.1).
A projection from the outside wall, forming a bow window if curved, a faceted window or bay if angled, an oriel window if suspended above ground level, or a conical bay if its roof is cone-shaped
A principal area or division in the architectural arrangement of a building- The divisions may be marked by fenestration, buttresses or pilasters in elevation; or roof structure in plan.
Vertical division of a container vessel from stem to stern, used to indicate stowage places for containers. The numbers run from stem to stern; odd numbers indicate a 20-foot position, even numbers indicate a 40-foot position.â†’ Cell Position â†’ Grid Number
a compartment of a building; the space between two pairs of columns or two roof principals.
part of the building comprised between two vertical shafts or supporting columns
The space between the main frames measured normal to the frame.
Space formed by the opening between two walls or columns.
Typically three windows joined together. The center window is often fixed with operating double-hung or casement windows on the sides. Bay windows can be fixed, vented or a combination of the two.
The space between the main frames measured parallel to the sidewall.
Three or more windows set at angles to each other within a recessed area.
The lateral space between the interplane struts on one side of a biplane. Thus a Gauntlet is a two-bay biplane, a Gladiator is a single-bay biplane.
The spaces between window opening jambs on the facade of a building; a repetitive vertical subdivision of the facade.
The distance between frame center lines, measured in the longitudinal direction of the building.
The space between the main frames or primary supporting members in the longitudinal direction of a steel building system
Any of a number of principle divisions of a wall, roof, or other part of a building marked off by vertical or transverse supports.
A vertical section of usually 6 or 7 bookshelves. Bays are arranged in Rows or Ranges.
bow and oriel windows These windows project out from the front or side of a house. Oriel windows generally project from an upper story, supported by a bracket. Bay windows are angled projections that rise up from the ground on the first floor. Bow windows are rounded projections, often formed of the window glass itself.
The opening between two columns or walls that forms a space.
A subdivision of the interior space of a building, usually in a series bounded by by consecutive architectural supports.
window — Any window space projecting outward from the walls of a building, either square or polygonal in plan.
The space between frame center lines or primary supporting members in the longitudinal direction of the building. Also called stanchion spacing.
THE SPACE BETWEEN JOISTS OR RAFTERS.
a division of space that is repeated within a building, a three bay house would have three spaces repeated along one side as in two rooms and a hall. A space that projects from the rest of the building as in a bay window. (IMAGE)
A subdivision of the interior space of a building. In Romanesque and Gothic churches, the transverse arches and piers of the arcade divide the building into bays.
A compartment into which a building is divided. Bays are marked by buttresses, pilasters in the walls, by the position of the main ribs of the vaulting of the interior, etc.
Space between two bents.
A spatial division down the length of the building which divides it into sections from the floor to the roof. The pier marks the division between each bay.
A vertical division of a vessel from stem to stern, used as a part of the indication of a stowage place for containers. The numbers run from stem to stern; odd numbers indicate a 20 foot position, even numbers indicate a 40 foot position.
A combination of window units which projects to the exterior. Usually features a large center unit with two flanking units at 30° or 45° angles to the wall.
A regularly repeated spatial element, within a structure, defined by beams or ribs and their supports.
a compartment of interior architectural space, defined and expressed by divisions marked in the walls and ceiling
An unfinished area located between a row of columns and the bearing wall
A vertical division of a building that is not denoted by a wall but by some other means such as a window, column or buttress.
