// reinterpretation of the classical Greek colonnade //
The influence of ancient Greek architecture has echoed throughout the centuries, first inspiring Roman culture, and today, Greek-developed architecture continues to guide today’s most forward-thinking architects.
Classical architecture is renowned for its intricate details, symmetry, balance and innovative use of natural stone. The result is a monument like the Parthenon in the Acropolis that has stood the test of time, erected with commanding colonnades. A structural element revamped in this contemporary home designed by Entasis Group.
“The columns promote scale, rhythm, texture, balance, direction and strength in the home,” said Entasis Architect Brian Ojala. “The limestone masses slowly dissipate as you pass through the home and act as a constant reminder of scale throughout.”
