Architect Saturday, June 17th 2017.
Architecture can be very complicated or it can be extremely simplistic in nature, depending on how it is explained. The same is true for you when working with your architect. While your home is being designed in the schematic or beginning stages, don’t’ be afraid to ask questions that are second and third level if necessary. An architect wants to ensure that your home becomes second nature to you. Therefore don’t be afraid to ask questions and even challenge your architect to another design theory if you feel fit.
To explain it simply, a golden rectangle signifies any shape that can be wholly divided into up into a square and a rectangle that, when combined, establish a ratio of 1:1.61. Since both the lengths and widths of these shapes correspond to the ration, the theory states that you should be able to continue dividing the resulting rectangles into smaller and smaller segments while still maintaining the ratio’s proportions. The inverse is also true. If an architect wants to make a structure larger or smaller to accommodate their clients’ needs, as long as they follow the principles laid out by the ratio, they have the ability to correctly alter a building’s proportions with just a few simple calculations.
Ah, architects. No one can know how these creative, sometimes-eccentric minds envision their next great design, but there are some basic truths that make a good architect — and typically these truths require a certain mode of thought. Let’s take a look at the mind of an architect. What traits do the best ones share?
The Ellipzes story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Maurella Lamore launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture.
