Pedimented Palladian

Palladian windows are rooted in the classical architecture of Greece and Rome, so they look particularly good on dormers with molding that creates the look of columns that are holding up a pediment (the triangular wall under a gable roof). Palladian windows originated in the 1700s, but these are clearly later because the large panes weren't possible to make with the technology of that era.
