a hip roof having two slopes on each side
A roof shape consisting of two superimposed levels of hip roofs with the lower level at a steeper pitch.
A roof with an extreme pitch, often it will appear vertical. These roofs will sometimes have a flat roof on top, or a low sloped hip roof.
Form of pitched roof designed to provide more space for rooms
A roof that has a double slope on all four sides, with the lower slope being quite steep or nearly vertical.
A vertical roof section that covers a portion of the living area.
Double pitched roof in which lower pitch is nearly vertical and upper is nearly horizontal
A roof having a slope in two planes, the lower of which is usually much steeper. Named after French architect Francois Mansart.
A roof with two slopes, the lower steeper than the upper; named after the French architect Francois Mansart (1598-1666)
A type of roof containing two sloping planes of different pitch on each of four sides. The lower plane has a much steeper pitch than the upper, often approaching vertical. Contains no gables.
A hipped roof with double slopes on all four sides, frequently with the lower slope being steeper than the upper slope. The lower slope is frequently punctuated by the use of dormers.
( toit en mansarde) a roof that has a double slope, with the lower part steeper than the upper one; also called a gambrel roof, especially for barns.
a steeper roof that terminates into a flat roof at its high point.
flat on top, sloping steeply down on all four sides, thus appearing to sheath the entire top story of a house or building.
A roof having on each side a steeper lower part and a shallower upper part.
A roof with two slopes on all four sides, with the lower slope almost vertical and the upper almost horizontal.
A roof with four sides that slope upward from the roof edge to the square peak.
A roof with two slopes or pitches on each of the four sides. The lower portion has a steeper slope than the upper portion.
A vertical portion of roofing.
named after the French architect Francois Mansart (1598-1666); a double slope roof with the lower slope being longer and steeper, with a concave curve. Can be sloped on all four sides or just two sides (front and back). (IMAGE)
a very steeply sloped, straight, or concave roof that frequently is pierced with projecting dormer windows and sometimes with towers. The mansard roof is a key characteristic of the Second Empire style.
A roof that has a double slope, with the lower slope steeper and longer than the upper one; a gambrel roof. Named after the seventeenth-century French architect François Mansart.
A type of hip roof which has four sloping sides, each of which becomes steeper partway down.
A four-sided roof that slopes upward from the edge of the roof to a square peak. This type of roof has two different slopes around all sides of the structure, the upper of which may be nearly horizontal and the lower nearly vertical.
A flat roof having sloping edges to eaves level.
A Mansard or Mansard roof in architecture refers to a style of hip roof characterized by two slopes on each of its four sides with the lower slope being much steeper, almost a vertical wall, while the upper slope, usually not visible from the ground, is pitched at the minimum needed to shed water. This form makes maximum use of the interior space of the attic and is considered a practical form for adding a story to an existing building. Often the decorative potential of the Mansard is exploited through the use of convex or concave curvature and with elaborate dormer window surrounds.
