Period Homes - March 2006

Adapted from a lecture given at the Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America, this article by Richard Sammons demonstrates how proportion guides the design of a Georgian room.

"Differentiation also plays an important role in the design of the interior. The first differentiating move should be to determine the size and location of the most important distinction in the composition at hand: in this case, the violent act of opening a doorway in the wall is the most significant."
