Palladian-style windows are a natural fit in arched top dormers where windows curve in line with the roof. This style of window came to the United States in the 1700s from England, where the published designs of Italian architect Andrea Palladio had caught on. Palladian windows have a shape that fit with a general desire in the late 1800s for architecture rooted in ancient European traditions.
