A Perfect House Starts With The Pediments Design
Pediments first appeared in Greek architecture, decorating the tops of doors and windows, which is one of the typical features of classical architecture. During the Renaissance and the subsequent Baroque and Rococo periods, new and more complex shapes were introduced and gradually began to combine with sculptural reliefs.
Triangular and segmented pediments are further varied by using different tops and bottoms.The options are: standard, receding, and broken.
The ratio of pediment’s height and width depends on its size. If it’s too high, it will visually give people a sense of oppression, while if it’s too small, it will show no obvious decorative effect. Therefore, as pediment become larger, the ratio should be decreased.
The size of the pediment is related to the number of columns. The following formula will be used to determine the appropriate height for a given width and number of columns:
