A soffit is an exterior or interior architectural feature, generally the horizontal underside of any construction element. A structure to fill the space between the ceiling and the top of cabinets mounted on the wall is also called a soffit, as is the material connecting an exterior wall to the edge of the roof under the eaves.
The eaves are the edges of the roof which overhang the face of a wall and, normally, project beyond the side of a building. The eaves form an overhang to throw water clear of the walls and may be highly decorated as part of an architectural style, such as the Chinese dougong bracket systems.
The visible underside of an arch, balcony, beam, cornice, staircase, vault or any other architectural element.
