something similar to a buttress
What is the translation to the english language for this sort of arches between buildings in narrow alleys?
In Germany it is called Schwibbogen (schwibb arch) or Schwebebogen (float arch)(freestanding arch). I got the following answers but i think that these are not the corect translations for this arches.
