Word for indoor balcony?

albearto

Students, architectural professionals, what is the word?  'Catwalk' is just the answer..Period, as long as it is 'open to below' on both sides to a substantial degree with only 'balustrades' (in case y'all forgot what they are too, they're the floor to handrail height assembly thingys with a railing for one to grasp with their hand, and also with some medium between the floor and the railing which will to allow your chirdren to get their heads stuck into, while at the same time will also prevent your chirdren from falling from the 'Catwalk' via the 'open to below' airspace to the underlying 'Mezanine' or whatever the correst name for the space down may be...Some common materials used are wood, ornamental iron or maybe even or plexiglass or chicken wire or even un-refined sections of tree trunks from whatever saplings might be abundant in the area.....Ya know, the 'pickets' or 'baluster' thingys.   'Catwalk' is just the answer..Period.  As long as the aforementioned descriptives have been satisfied.  And you're all welcome, now you can sleep at night again.  BUT WAIT!   Might it be acceptable to utilize more than only one word for the space?  OH NO!  WHAT HAVE I SAID AND DONE NOW?  Maybe you can call it an 'Open Hallway'.  Or maybe one could use even more words than only two, and throw in a slash-mark to be appropriately descriptive. 'Catwalk/Open Hallway/Upper Landing w/ Balustrade'  thats it!  Not gonna be able to sleep at night again.  Now to see how many might be compelled to quip that 'chirdren' is not a word in the English vocabulary and to ask if I was referring to or intending to say 'children'.

Maybe you can stop resurrecting long dead threads?

Wondering what's worse... resurrecting a dead thread, or posting a new clone. Both are annoying.

The term you are searching for, I believe (as was I) is "open hallway"

The least they could have done was align the tile joints on the column.

That tile installer has been misaligning tile joints for years and doesn't care what you, fancy designer, says.

I can't even begin to describe how frustrating and maddening it is that architecture students/architects don't know what to call this thing. You all fail.
