cantilever

A beam or overhanging architectural element that is supported at only one end.The most common examples are bay windows and swimming pool diving boards.The most famous example is a balcony that seems to be suspended in the air above a waterfall at Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural masterpiece, Fallingwater, in Pennsylvania (www.paconserve.org/fallingwaterhome.htm).
