Multi-unit interior air well name

Recommended Posts

What do you call these air wells in the middle of buildings which have no access other than windows? I'm pretty sure I asked this before but cannot remember the answer.

Light well is the recent term.  When the Tenement House Act was enacted - all windows had to open to plain air - it was called an air shaft  (where all the tenants dumped trash and emptied chamber pots).
