What is a Cupola?

In architecture, a cupola consists of a dome-shaped or quadrilateral-shaped ornamental structure located on top of a larger roof or dome, historically often used as a lookout. The word comes, through Italian, from the lower Latin ‘cupula’ (classical Latin ‘cupella’ from the Greek ‘kupellon’) small cup (lat. ‘cupa’) indicating a vault resembling an upside down cup.

An Imperial cupola can be a great addition to your barn. It can not only provide a unique decorative finishing touch, but also can be designed to be functional by admitting light and providing ventilation.
An Imperial Design Consultant can help you select the proper Cupola for your barn. Too small a Cupola on a big barn or too big a Cupola on a small barn will not look right. The generally accepted ratio is at least one inch of Cupola width for every foot of roof length. Don’t forget to select a unique weathervane!
