Loggia (lō’-jē-ə) is the name given to an architectural feature originally of Italian design.

Often a gallery or corridor, at ground level or an upper story, on the facade of a building and open to the air, supported by columns or pieced openings in the wall.


This Loggia, previously covered up and incorporated into the house as a modern kitchen, was reopened and given a Medieval fireplace to provide for winter teas. A Sicilian iron-and-crystal chandelier hangs over the wine-tasting table and a set of 18th-century Liégeois split-cane bergères.
