what would you call this opening?

grahammillie

Is there an architectural name for this interior cut out/window thing?

I see the sill, but can't tell if the jambs and header are cased.

It would be a bad hide. No concealment and your field of fire is too limited.

Those words are lost on me. The only sniping I know involves frozen water and curved sticks.

Think of it as if you were trying to sneakily shoot at a hockey goal but you don't have skates, pads, or a helmet.  You want a place where you can shoot from without being seen and can quickly escape so the enforcers won't find you and beat you up.

With a ceiling fan to grind it into little, easy-to-dispose-of pieces.

Bad.  I'd call it bad.  Like makes my face hurt.

They could have centred
the dresser on the opening.

they used to put coffin nooks around stairways, but it doesn't look like this is going around a corner?

ooh, this might be an apartment.  if this is a mezzanine bedroom because they aren't allowed to add another floor and they needed the extra area, then the bedroom is required to be open to the floor below per 2018 IBC 505.2.  i think the concept is that if there is a fire below and the room is enclosed you might not know it until its too late.  if that is the case, i don't think this meets the intent of the code.

I'd say it's a lazy design that makes my face hurt even if it meets building code. ;)
