Fake English mansions in Russia
To live in a classic-looking English mansion not far from Moscow is a dream nurtured by the hard work of realtors in the capital. People often come to us with a desire to give their architectural project the image of a good old house. What exactly gives away the new architecture, despite the desire to style it like an old mansion?
A mansion near Moscow.
Overly contrasting color of the decorative elements. Instead of volumetric shaping accepted in architecture the facade changes into a flat painting.
Soft contrast of all parts of the building. Decorative elements are the same tone as the walls.
|The basement belt is clearly marked out and exaggerated.||The basement belt is often not highlighted in any way, even if there is a high basement.|
|White plastic windows. Livid bleachers in decors, an unpleasant chromatic contrast.||The calm warm whiteness of the window frames. Paintings in the tone of the facade or other colors.|
|Windows without partitions make large rectangular gaps in the facade of the building.||Partitions in the windows. Double frames are often used to add depth.|
|Bright and contrasting roof colors to the facade. Selecting the color of the roof is done in isolation from everything else.||Deaf colors of roofs damp from time, gray-red with freckles tones of unpainted shingles.|
|New-looking. Overly sharp and perfectly perpendicular corners of steps, walls, soffits. A pretentious whiteness.||Noble dilapidation, skewed, darkened. Worn corners give the building softness and plasticity.|
|Complex facades and contour of the house in plan with a relatively small volume of construction.||Simple in plan form of the house in the classic English mansion.|
|Polished granite and marble entrances in the "country" houses.||Entrances are devoid of pathos and yet beautiful. Ceramic tiles, pebbles, concrete, gray stones.|
