A "Juliet Balcony," or occasionally a balconet or balconette, is a balcony that does not project beyond the neighboring walls. They are so named because they were originally designed for Romeo and Juliet by Italian artist Giuseppe Giorgi. They are also called "balcony gardens."
These little balconies can be parts of larger ones or single decks. They usually have room for one or two chairs and provide a pleasant place to sit and enjoy the view. Some people call them "window boxes" because they are often filled with colorful flowers.
They are found on many old buildings in Europe including Italy, France, and England. There are also some modern buildings with juliet balconies such as The Charles Hotel in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
In the United States, juliet balconies can be found on historic homes in places like Baltimore, Maryland; Charleston, South Carolina; and New York City.
People love living on juliet balconies because you get part of the view outside your window but still feel like you're inside when it's cold or hot out. Some say they can see better from here than what's going on down below because their eyes are used to the distance between themselves and the ground.
The terrace A balcony is a raised platform on the outside of a structure that is surrounded by walls or balustrades and supported by columns or console brackets. The platform protrudes from a building's wall, generally above the ground floor. Balconies are normally tiny and are not utilized for socializing or partying. They are used to have a view of what's happening on the street below or to catch some fresh air when you need it.
A balconie is an extra room or area added to the side of a house, apartment, or other building; usually created by extending a floor or ceiling of a main room up to the required height. This allows space for additional living areas without having to build an entire new level. Most commonly, this extension will be enclosed with glass or another transparent material, allowing light in while also providing privacy from people inside the main room and/or other apartments.
In many countries around the world, including Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Spain, and the United States, a common type of balcony construction uses pre-made wood frames covered in aluminum or fiberglass panels. These can be installed either as an original feature of the home or bought as part of a kit containing all necessary materials and tools for the installation process. In other cases, metal framing members are used instead. No matter what kind of material is used for the frame, all types of balconies require support under the ends of the frame pieces that connect them to the house.
Balconnet or balconette is an architectural name for a fake balcony or railing at the outside plane of a window-opening reaching to the floor and giving the illusion of a balcony when the window is open. The Palazzo Labia in Venice is a notable example of a balconette. Balcony rails like these are common on buildings in tropical climates where there is no need for interior space beyond what can be used by its occupants.
In Europe, this type of window decoration is known as a corbeled balcony or corbelshed and can be found on many buildings dating back as early as 1450. It was popularized especially in Victorian-era London when it was thought that exposing women to fresh air would make them healthier. They were also used as a security measure - if someone wanted in, they would have to climb over the corbeling.
The word "balcony" comes from Latin balconeus, which means "with a wall," referring to the fact that the first ones didn't have any roof above them. Over time, the term has evolved to include any exterior walkway with open sides, even if it does not reach all the way to the floor.
There are several types of corbeled balconies: single, double, and triple. With single corbelled balconies, there is only one layer of curved wood beams supporting the weight of the ceiling.
