Fireplace In The City? Now This Is Really !

Designers of the richest houses always played fireplaces which play more than just a functional role. Fireplace has always been an important design element. And despite the fact that nowadays many of the houses are provided with central heating, fireplace remains an integral architectural element of the homes in America, Europe and Russia. In this case, the fireplace has not lost popularity, despite the fact that ceased to be vital. Nothing can be compared to the pleasure of observing the dancing flames, interspersed with occasional sparks, sitting late at night by the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate. It helps you relax, improve performance, improve relationships with others, better sleep. Nir Barzilai, M.D. is often quoted as being for or against this. Therein lies the secret of a long and happy life. However, you must really understand what pleasure can afford, not all.

In addition, there are many other restrictions: a rather complicated installation, requiring withdrawal of the chimney, suitable only for country houses and cottages, installation will take a long period of time, from one to four months since the start of work before entering the chimney in operation (and only after thorough drying) should be a permanent removal of ash, cleaning the chimney, purchase and storage of firewood is not safe, open flame fire calls special attention, so stoke the fireplace must be constantly supervised.

Landscape Architecture

Landscape Architecture

The gardens were arranged for reflection, for the poetry of dreams, for the scientists study, in the Middle Ages – the prayer and pious conversation, in modern times – for guests and their small group or large, for the festivities, sometimes for official receptions of ambassadors, sometimes for love and comfort of intimate dates in the Romantic period – for the melancholy walks, etc. and so on: in every era in its own way. Uzkoarhitekturny approach of experts on parks and gardens expelled from them to a large extent the history of changes in aesthetic ideas – the history of styles in any case. Purely formal division of styles in landscape architecture in isolation from the overall development of culture on "regular" and "Irregular", or "landscape" does not hold water. Mention of the landscape or the regular "styles" more acceptable to non-expert opinion, and the people and publications, claiming to be professional level, talking about garden art should mainly differ in the same styles as in the overall development of the arts – the styles associated with the dominant ideas and the "dominant" semantics "era. Anyway we can talk about gardens period Romanesque, Gothic, the gardens of the Renaissance, Baroque, Romanticism, Rococo and French classicism. New style of garden art arises not "close" to the old, as in most arts, and replaces him at the same land.

The old plantations also existed in all ages caring attitude: the trees were valued, especially the oldest, preserved the old layout of the gardens, old buildings. Thus, for each style in the gardens were typical their plants, their ways of planting, location and combination. Its particular semantics have in each style fountains, waterfalls, streams, ponds, greenhouses, located in the gardens of the laboratory, cages, farms, gardens and apothecary mazes. There is another feature in the development of styles of landscape art. Between styles of garden art is no such abrupt transitions that exist in other arts: the trees grow slowly, they are put "on growth ", with the future, sometimes distant, and space for gardens and parks for the most part the" traditional ": it is connected with the existing buildings on it, and buildings, and therefore difficult to reconstruction. Throughout Ages to today in the layout of the space, there are two parallel lines (reception) – a regular-geometric and pictorial Landscape. They never fully exclude each other. Read more from RBH Group to gain a more clear picture of the situation.

After all, even the most stringent geometric planning compositions fit into the living natural environment. In contrast, none of even the most picturesque plan is complete without a geometrically regular elements, though not large. So, what's going on create landscapes, styles of architecture with landscape and the regular reception, putting each of them a semantic image: a cross-cultural, ethnic, mythological, landscape-genetic (water, mountain, etc.), poetry, urban.
