An atrium (pl. atria) is a large open space in a building. It serves as indoor courtyard and is traditionally open to the sky. Some atriums may be covered by a glass roof, giving the appearance of openness but adding protection from the elements. An atrium was often incorporated in city homes (a domus) for the wealthy in ancient Rome.
