Scene 3 - Classical qualities of timelessness and Piranesi's manipulation of scale played out in the design for a hospital waiting room. Mirrored walls can be concealed and revealed to change the size and complexity of the space

Меандр (греч. μαίανδρος) – тип ортогонального орнамента, представляющий собой рисунок в виде ломаных под прямым углом прямых линий. Назван этот орнамент был в честь извилистой реки Меандр (Meandr) в Малой Азии. Этот узор имеет множество вариантов, в числе которых встречается классический меандр древних греков, а также его упрощенные и усложненные виды. На фото Вы видите вазон из архибетона, изготовленный нами в гипсовой мастерской.
Packed with history and #activism
this museum really moved us! Located in #Warsaw
Zacheta National Gallery @galeria_zacheta
echoes incredibly important historical moments. Zacheta means “encouragement” in Polish. The name comes from a society that was set up in 1860 by artists and painters (like Wojciech Gerson) called the Society for the Encouragement of Fine Arts. Today this space is also a home to 20th and 21st century art. We love places with this much depth and character and #Zacheta
connects the past and the present of Polish Art world. The beautiful premises of the exhibitions are constantly changing, and everyone is waiting to see what is going to appear next in the spacious lounges of this real art #palace
at Malachowski Square. More about the museum via link in our bio.
We are excited to introduce a new series in 2019, “Case Studies in New Classical & Traditional Design,” which will explore the design and execution of new work from the practitioner’s perspective.
For the first installment in the series, RAMSA Partner Gary Brewer, with Senior Associate Will Gridley and Associate Jennifer Fitzpatrick, will lead an in-depth discussion on Courier Square, a new mixed-use urban infill project in Charleston, South Carolina, which will continue the expansion of Charleston’s urban fabric north from the city’s already bustling Broad Street area over three phases of construction.
Join us for this presentation on Wednesday, January 16, 2019.

Finally, I can’t resist some views of my favorite building in New York City, the Appellate Division Courthouse on Madison Square Park. Spied this weekend while I was doing my Christmas shopping nearby at @rizzolibooks
, this stunning building was designed by James Brown Lord, and a full quarter of its construction budget was spent on sculpture. Passing shoppers that fail to slow down might miss one of the city’s most gorgeous pieces of architecture!

Looking back at Christmas cards part 6. The inspiration for 2009's illustration is a beautiful project in Castle Pines, just outside Denver CO.
Designed by DHR Associates of Denver. Expertly built by J.K. Barnett Builders of Parker CO and installed with inspiration and skill by Kudu Roofing of Littleton CO. @guymumford1

Palazzina Selva, beautiful jewel box of a building at the S. Marco vaporetto stop, near Harry’s Bar and Palazzo Ducal, #Venezia
. Now a bookstore and tourist info - wonder what it was built for originally?
The wing tipped edges of the roof are inspired by those found on aeroplane wings, the feature here displays a sharp end to the sloped roof and a more pronounced edge between the roof and building. It doesn’t fly yet it stays in the sky. #classicalarchitecture #housedesign
One couldn't do Chiswick House without posting the interior of the understated, elegant link building.
A drawing of the Palazzo Farnese in Rome. This elevation showcases the Northeastern half of the large, three-story building. Both triangular and curved pediments can be seen on this structure and I love the way they complement each other. #inspiredbyarchitecture #classicalarchitecture
Montgomerie House or Coilesfield Castle, Tarbolton. Built for Col. Hugh Montgomery, 12th Earl of Eglington, between 1804 and 1805 to designs by architect John Paterson, who was a protege of Robert Adam, the house was described as the most beautiful country seat in Ayrshire. The estate itself is steeped in literary and historic significance. "Coilsfield" derives from "Cole's field," being the location of the final resting place of ancient British King Cole of nursery rhyme fame. In the late 18th century poet Robert Burns was a frequent visitor to the property being romantically involved with a milkmaid who worked in the household. In 1847 William Orr became the adopted heir of the architect of the house, John Paterson, on the telling contingency that he change his name to Paterson and also buy the Coilsfield estate and rename it Montgomerie House. After a series of failed attempts to make the property a working hotel throughout the 20th century, the house mysteriously was gutted by fire, just after many of its grand mantelpieces were removed in 1969. In 1971 all traces of the house were bulldozed into the ground. On the opposite side of the grand entrance portico was a D shaped library which Gillows of Lancaster supplied a suite of extraordinary parcel gilt armchairs with lion monopodia in 1806. Klismos Gallery is proud to offer a pair of these pieces identical to those supplied to Montgomerie House. Inquire for details.
