Gingerbread-By-Design / Balconies
Gingerbread-By-Design provides templates utilizing a large variety of balcony types, designs and styles.
Cantilever balconies are platforms added to a house projecting from the face of the house without any visible support. This balcony type is pre-designed and part of the building process, and cannot be added to a house at a later date.
Faux balconies are ornamentation in the form of a railing attached to the facade of a house, usually under a window. There is no floor and they don’t provide any real use except for decorative purposes. Think of faux balconies as flair for the exterior walls and windows.
Juliet balconies are ornamentation and consist of a door with a shallow railing, attached to the facade of a house. There is no floor and they don’t provide any real use except for decorative purposes. Think of Juliet balconies as flair for the exterior walls and doors.
The Loggia balcony may look like a balcony but it’s actually a distinct architectural feature. Traditionally on an upper floor, however it is set apart by its roof and support structure. A typical balcony is suspended with no overhead covering, but a Loggia is inset as part of the building and shares the roof.
