室外工程建筑术语 Architect’s glossary – patio, terrace, veranda, deck, balcony

There are a lot of terms that we have to describe various kinds of exterior domestic spaces.  As “outdoor living” is becoming increasing popular in Colorado if not around the county, I find that my clients are often using different terms for same space.  Is that place where the picnic table is going to go the terrace or the patio?  Is it a deck or a balcony? So, with some images of projects I have designed, here goes:

patio: attached or detached, hard-paved, on the ground and of the earth

terrace: attached or detached, hard-paved, most importantly, it is raised from the earth around it, but not yet a deck.

veranda: attached to the house, roofed porch
