Chapter 1 The World of Architecture
Developed over 200 years ago. Very traditional home Usually built as 1 or ½ story but later 2 stories have become common Originally had a steep roof with little overhang Eve lines are near the top of the window
Very much like the Cape Code except for the chimney The Chimney is usually centrally located and larger than the Cape Cod The home consists of simple lines and sound construction and a feel of colonial atmosphere.
Variation of the colonial home but features a Gambrel Rood where the pitch is abruptly changed. The advantage of the Gambrel roof is the extra headroom and usable living space
The traditional feature of the Garrison is the overhanging second floor. The separate corner posts make it possible to use shorter stronger posts. The short straight lines provide economy in framing materials. Extra space is added at the second level by the overhang at very little extra cost.
Considered a Colonial Consists of a long roofline sloping generally from ridge to eaves. Gets its name from the shape of coffee, tea, cracker and salt boxes found in Colonial stores. The long slanting roof was helpful in combating the bitter winds common to New England winters.
This house was designed to express a mood of elegance and traditional charm. Outstanding features include the front colonnade and portico. Usually massive with upper and lower balconies Three story chimneys for bedroom fireplaces Ornate woodwork and iron trim Roof over the driveway
Many of today’s structures are well planned while others lack imagination or design balance. The term modern does not denote any one particular architectural style. Most modern homes borrow distinctive features from traditional features.
The most important job of the architect is to design homes that satisfy the customers. The rapid development of new construction materials and methods of fabrication has made it possible to design homes that require minimum maintenance.
Long low one story house that grew out of the rancher’s homes of the southwestern part of the country. Low pitched roof Gables and overhanging eaves One or two car attached garage Contain basements
Many homes are designed for dramatic effects Many are designed for a particular style The BIG trend is to design a home that is dramatic yet comfortable.
