What is the difference between a balcony and a loggia?
Quite often we hear talk about repairs, in which people talk about balconies or loggias. What is the difference between a balcony and a loggia? How to be literate in such a conversation?
A balcony in construction is called serving fromwall surface fenced area. This area can be glazed from all sides, or can be fenced only from below. The balcony does not have side walls.
It is customary to call a loggia built-in orA pad that is attached to the wall plane, which is fenced with walls from three or two sides (depending on the location in the building). The loggia can also be glazed.
As can be seen, the fundamental difference is whether the site is a separate element in the building, or it is built into its walls, ie. forms a niche in the wall.
This question is important when redeveloping the apartment. For example, a loggia in some cases can be combined with a room to expand the space. But the balcony - you can not.
