Architrave

Description

In classical architecture, the architrave is the lowest section of the horizontal entablature. It acts as a lintel or beam that rests on the capitals of the vertical columns. It is generally topped with a frieze and cornice. The architrave varies corresponding to the distinguishing features of the main architectural orders – DoricIonic and Corinthian.

Architraves can also be found in building interiors. Here, an architrave is a molding that sits above a door, window or other opening, where the architrave extends across the top of the side moldings to the opening. (*)
