Featured on churches and castles, a round window provides standout design for your interior or exterior door. Our Arched Wood Door with Iron Grill is accented with our signature studs and includes an iron bottom plate to enhance the aesthetic and protect against scuffs.
Circular Windows During Medieval Times
Circular windows or openings in buildings can be found as far back as the Roman empire when they were used to light interiors while maintaining architectural stability. The best known instance of a round opening in Roman times is at the top dome of the Partheon.
Round windows gained popularity during the Romanesque period, and continued on through the Middle Ages, through their use in churches, cathedrals, and castles. These round windows were often filled with stained glass to create beautiful colored patterns and to fill dim rooms with light during the day. A well-known castle, Richmond, in North Yorkshire, England, has one of the few remaining instances of circular castle windows, making it a testament to old world style. Richmond Castle was built in the late 11th century and has a relatively intact chapel complete with oval windows.
