PORCH  { A.K.A } VERANDA

Veranda - Kami Dari Semua

porch (from Old French porche, from Latin porticus ‘colonnade,’ from porta ‘passage’) is external to the walls of the main building proper, but may be enclosed by screen, latticework, broad windows, or other light frame walls extending from the main structure.

There are various styles of porches, all of which depend on the architectural tradition of its location. All porches will allow for sufficient space for a person to comfortably pause before entering or after exiting the building. However, they may be larger. Verandahs, for example, are usually quite large and may encompass the entire facade as well as the sides of a structure. At the other extreme, the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan has the longest porch in the world at 660 feet (200 m) in length

veranda or verandah is a roofed opened gallery or porch.[1] It is also described as an open pillared gallery, generally roofed, built around a central structure.[2] It is often partly enclosed by a railing and frequently extends across the front and sides of the structure.[3]

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word verandah originated in India where it is found in several native languages. However, it may have been an adaptation of the Portuguese or older Spanish varanda (baranda or barandilla in modern Spanish), again borrowed from Indian languages, referring to a railing, balustrade or balcony. The distinctive style of Indian architecture evolved from a hybrid of east and west. The veranda is one of the many new hybrid architectural elements.[4]

Although the form “verandah” is correct and very common, some authorities prefer the version without an h (the Oxford English Dictionary gives the h version as a variant, and theGuardian Style Guide says “veranda not verandah”).
