Styles Of Design

At first, let's say that this style. Usually, the word community understand the ideological and artistic tendencies inherent in any particular period or art movement. The style applied to the interior, used to create the space, the atmosphere which is one artistic idea, under which selected decorative elements, decorative materials. It should be noted that the former Soviet Union private interior design has appeared recently before this time, the ideology of the state was aimed at the depersonalization of people and erasing any distinction between members of society. Today things are done differently. Even people with average income can afford to order an exclusive interior design of apartments. The only things which will seriously smash his head, so it is just over the choice of stylistic solutions.

Art-deco high-tech, Empire, classicism, Nouveau – it's not all the styles that specialized studios to offer customers. We want to introduce you to some of the current artistic trends, so you can choose suits your interior design with taking into account the peculiarities of his character and outlook. Hi-tech style likely to appeal to young, technologically 'advanced' people. Its characteristic features are the functionality and minimalism, the use of modern materials as well as unconventional, futuristic form of furniture. In such circumstances, especially looks good variety of household and computer equipment, as well as possible corresponding to our understanding of the room of the future. If you more to the liking of simplicity, balance and natural shape, then choose a particular interior design made in the 'English' style. From other directions it is different mock, pronounced solemnity heaviness and massiveness to reflect the reliability and permanence of the classics.

It is suitable for any room, so if you hesitate and do not know what to choose, we recommend staying on the proven time setting. The truly revolutionary style – this is modern. He was born at the turn of xix – xx centuries and instantly won the hearts of people. The main rule, which professes the interior design of apartments in this style – the lack of pattern-making, freedom in choosing the building materials and decorative elements. . Using this approach, designers are creating elegant and unique rooms in which fits well with home appliances, furniture and other furnishings. Art Deco is also an offshoot of modernism. On the one hand it classical, straightforward and thorough, but on the other – a very extensive use of modern motifs: a combination of sophisticated, expensive materials, sinuous lines, images of fantastic plants and creatures. If it was not the theme of modernity, then the Art Deco could be called primitive, but everything turned out differently, and now this style has many loyal fans in all corners our planet. As you may already have been able to see the private interior design – just a godsend for people wanting to live in their original, unusual and functional apartment. Of course, you can achieve the desired goal only if will cooperate with well-established specialist, but the choice of a designer – it's a topic for a large, separate article.

Historical Appearance

The main objective the desire to preserve the historic look of cities, the architectural uniqueness of the centers: a network of streets and blocks, the structure of their building, the spatial solution of each building, the elements of buildings (facades, interiors, roofing, etc.). But to solve such problems is not easy. Of course, in small towns can be used for cultural purposes of the museum the entire center. For example, came in Suzdal, where in most old buildings – residential homes, churches, monasteries, mall located tourism facilities – museums, restaurants, hotels, shops, etc. However, Suzdal – so far the only such example. But conservation methods are unacceptable for most medium and especially large cities, where the territory is a valuable historical building, as a rule, fully coincides with the area to a vibrant urban center. The contradictions between the need to preserve the building and needs sharper in the center of the city, more and more.

To solve this problem, we propose different measures. For example, to create a center outside the historic core. Some of these proposals have been initiated. First of all, the underlying concept of the reconstruction, showing – as we will develop a spatially central part of what are expected of a basic transport and pedestrian flows and what is the future appointment of separate sites, streets and neighborhoods. The most important part of this concept – the separation of the center of the zones with different buildings and according to level of protection varies.

Style Composition

And this is the charm of life is perhaps the main reason for the popularity of tracks from the stones and colors. For our mostly lowland composition of rocks and plants that contain a hint of mountain heights, is truly an indispensable method to diversify the landscape of the site, expand the horizons of vegetation, as if giving the plane an additional dimension – of depth. Stone compositions perfectly underscore the depth of a garden pond, greenery and the smoothness of the lawn, and even a gleam of sunlight. All of this landscape designers combine the term "high decorative. Indeed, a little design element has such a high decorative quality, this ability to emphasize and throw up their environment, as the composition of plants and stones. And from this point of view they are – are irreplaceable. Main styles and types of compositions Style future composition is determined at the first stage of design.

Characterize only three of them, the most common. "Japanese" style – more focused on the symbolism and abstraction, calculated on a long and thoughtful contemplation in order to comprehend the spirit of things. In quoting the word "Japanese" is taken because the Japanese gardens themselves are very different, and some of them practically inaccessible understanding Europeans. Japanese style implies that in the first place in the composition will be stones, pebbles, sand, fancy dry streams and dwarf plants. English style – is the rocky hills and screes with a predominance coniferous trees, grasses, sagebrush, that is, plants are equally inherent and mountain ranges and our district.

Architectural Design

In ancient Greek city-states was first built under the special plan, and had a square, which, in turn, were the centers of the public and, of course, economic – commercial life. And here is the cultural center of the city was Temple, which was built on top of the acropolis. In the times of ancient Romans, special achievements in the field of architecture was not observed. Basically, all the buildings serve the interests of slave-owning society, and their monumental explains the invention of new building material – concrete. In feudal times, during the emergence of social division of labor, construction work has been going on not slaves, and skilled artisans. During this period, Western Europe is gaining popularity building two and three storey houses, with small shops and workshops located on the first floor. During this period, emerging architecture of romantic style, there are vast monastery complexes with courtyards and arcades. In the second half of xii century begins to develop architecture of Gothic style, characterized by spiky, vertical canopies.

In this same period in the East Building is built of brick, residential buildings were built of clay, and the facades were decorated with carved mosaics. In addition, cultural and shopping centers were allocated a strict symmetry and monumentality. At the beginning of the xv century in Italy, born of the Renaissance, which opens a new stage of development of architecture. Promote the construction of public buildings, as well as palaces. In place of builders, artisans come to professional architects, practiced a new approach to forms pronounced in the palazzo.

Experts-architects returned to the achievements of the ancient world, taking as a basis for their classical orders and the system development of cities. Baroque architecture marked the XVII-XIX century, brings new trends in architecture, including the transition to a softer, flowing shapes, as well as an irrational understanding of the environment. Architecture of the xx century belongs already to the era of modernism, when the fashion is asymmetrical arrangement of windows and doors, patterned ceramic tiles and stained glass. Contemporary style of the xxi century is considered high-tech, which expressed in severe forms of minimalism and the predominance of materials such as metal combined with glass.
