These windows hug the ceiling and provide a scenic, high way to view the world outside
Clerestory (pronounced "CLEAR-story") windows are located at the uppermost part of a wall at the roofline, under the eaves. They provide light and ventilation to lofty spaces. Originally the term was used to describe the high windows in Roman church naves, but modern usage refers to any very high window.
A concrete ceiling with clerestory windows has a very open appearance.
These clerestory windows accent the area above the soffit of the kitchen.
Typically, a clerestory window is above a secondary roofline, but modern usage allows for any high window to be referred to as clerestory.
These are true clerestory windows on a secondary roofline.
