Description

Facade openings are the part of the exterior wall that establishes an interface between inside and out and makes it possible to illuminate and ventilate the the spaces behind it. Basics Facade Apertures deals with the design of facade openings. The many demands made on a window are first explained clearly, and the structural detail needed to construct them is then discussed. The various components, structural types and materials are presented with their specific characteristics and tied into the context of the surrounding wall areas, with close attention paid to understanding how the transition from opening to wall should be achieved. Consideration is also given to the peripheral areas around an opening which are also important structurally, functionally and in terms of design.The main focus is on windows butthe principles can be applied to designing doors.
