CLOISTER VAULT SPECIFICATIONS
Cloister vaults, also known as dome vaults, are a close cousin to the groin vault. Where the groin vault arches towards the center from the corners of the walls, the cloister vault arches toward the center from a constant spring point along the wall. This slight difference makes a huge impact on the overall design. Plus, if you’re looking to add height to a room on an exterior wall, the cloister vault can arch up into your attic, curving underneath your roof rafters.
