patterns/home, good to know
A great reference text as part of your new home or remodel the Patterns of Home, is a well defined synopsis of house design patterns that enhance the notions of the essence of home. These patterns are key in the process of working with homeowners; understanding that good homes do many things; combining these patterns together gain great design.
Here is the List: http://www.architectureweek.com/topics/patterns.html
- Pattern One — Inhabiting the Site
- Pattern Two — Creating Rooms, Outside and In
- Pattern Three — Sheltering Roof
- Pattern Four — Capturing Light
- Pattern Five — Parts in Proportion
- Pattern Six — The Flow through Rooms
- Pattern Seven — Private Edges, Common Core
- Pattern Eight — Refuge and Outlook
- Pattern Nine — Places in Between
- Pattern Ten — Composing with Materials
Each and every pattern listed is essential and key. These patterns, I reference each time in my architectural design work; design tools that respond appropriately and resonate with the life of the homeowners.
