Description

A Venetian window, also known as a Palladian window or Serlian window, consists of three elements.  The central light is taller than the two either side, and has an arch at the top.  The two smaller side-lights are flat-topped.

 

The alternative names derive from the writings of Italian architects Andrea Palladio (died 1580) and Sebastiano Serlio (died 1554).
