balcony and balconette

   In architecture, a balcony is photo of a second-storey balconyplatform that projects from the wall of a building and is surrounded by a railing, balustrade, or parapet. Because the balcony pictured is so small — projecting shallowly and from only one window — it may also be called a "balconette." Or, a gallery that projects over the main floor in a theater or an auditorium. Also see balustrade and niche.
