Loggia, balcony, terrace, veranda and winter garden

A balcony is a platform on a building that protrudes from the structure. A terrace, on the other hand, is an unroofed platform located below or on the ground floor level. However, there is also the so-called "roof terrace", which is inevitably located near the roof or on the roof itself. If the terrace is roofed or narrow, long and less square, it can also be called a veranda. The loggia, unlike the balcony, is an integral part of the building. A loggia is usually closed on all three sides and usually has large windows. A winter garden is an enclosed extension to a building, a stand-alone structure or a structure integrated into the building with at least one wall surface and a large part of the roof surface made of translucent building materials.
