deep embrasure


Senior Member
Hi there,

Could someone tell what a "deep embrasure " is in a room?

I found it in the following text"

" My room was very large, with a red tiled floor, a peaked ceiling, dark beams, deep embrasures, white stuccoed walls so thick the air in the room was always cool when the sun was shining and the air outside was hot."
from The End of The Story By Lydia Davis, p.27

Thanks in advance.
