|Catalan term or phrase: nau (not in a church)|
|I know what it means, just can't come up with the English word.|
"A l’antic pavelló on es guardaven els cavalls i els cotxes, hi ha uns arcs parabòlics i unes voltes de grans dimensions i que donen suport i cobreixen la nau."
I would say the 'nave' which is not exclusively for churches. It's a large vaulted space of any kind within a building, particularly large buildings.
An alternative would be to just generalise, using the word 'space' say.
'...that supported and covered the space below/the nave....?
