A clerestory is a wall with a band of narrow windows along the very top.


Frank Lloyd Wright used the clerestory windows to great advantage in his Usonian period houses with a continuous band of windows at the top of a wall immediately below the ceiling line, giving the ceiling the illusion of floating above the wall.


In this video see how the Wright’s clerestory windows served a inspiration for the Clerestory Corner Lamp.


Thanks for viewing,
