A boxed window in architecture refers to a window that is recessed and framed within the structure of a building. This type of window often has a deeper and more prominent frame than a typical window, which can add visual interest to the building’s exterior.
Boxed windows can be found in various styles of architecture, including traditional, modern, and contemporary. They can also be used in combination with other types of windows, such as bay windows, to create a unique and dynamic façade.
A boxed window is a type of window that is framed by a box-like structure, typically made of wood or PVC, that surrounds the window frame. This type of window is often used in new construction or remodeling projects and can be customized to fit the architectural style of a home or building. They can also be used for energy efficiency and can be treated for UV protection.

- Materials used for the frame and window sash
- Fastening methods used to secure the window in place
- Insulation and weatherproofing details
- Details of any trim or molding used around the window
- Any special features or considerations, such as ventilation or accessibility requirements.
This type of drawing is important for architects, builders, and contractors to ensure that the window is installed correctly and meets all relevant building codes and standards.
The drawing could be in the form of Elevation, Section, and plan view, and it should contain all the necessary information for the manufacturing, installation, and the finished product.
