Box Windows

Ashleigh2
Participant

I am pretty new to using Archicad so a few things are stumping me along the way.  I am trying to create a box window that you can sit in that has a set depth of 60cm.  I would like 20cm to sit internally and the remainder to jut out of the external wall.  I have attached an image of what I have done so far.  Can anyone please help to advise how I extend beyond the external wall (rather than having the whole seating area inside)?

 

Thanks!

Hi @Ashleigh2

 

May be you could try playing around with: Bay and Bow Windows 27> Square Bay Window 27

Also you could build the "box" using walls and slabs and a Basic Window instead. 

Even an oversized frame with a negative revel could work. It depends on the building system and the detail you need.

 

Regards.

This is easy with a Curtain wall.

Probably with more options and details than

the bay windows. It depends....
