This increasingly thick Christmas spirit reminds us of the Gothic architectural style. Gothic-style buildings first appeared in architecture in many of the world’s major cathedrals and churches. The emergence of this gothic architectural style between the 12th and 16th centuries. Then this gothic style became popular throughout Europe. Then the houses, castles and even works of art also adopted gothic characteristics.
More about this gothic architectural style, let’s take a look at some of the images we have collected to look back at 19th-century architectural styles in this modern era.
The gothic architecture style of this house can be found in the form of doors and windows high and tapered at the top.
LET THE LIGHT IN
Tall Gothic buildings, their arches fly high into the sky, and the sun shines in high glass windows and soaks wood, stone, and marble.
POINTED ARCH IS THE IDEA
It was the pointed arch that most definitely made the Gothic buildings look different from other styles. Europeans use pointed curves in new ways.
BEAUTIFUL POINTED ARCH
The gothic architecture emphasizes art. Just like building structures, there is an emphasis on complex geometric shapes.
EVERYTHING IS TALLER
In Gothic architecture, everything is taller and looks more fragile, and the colonnade often reaches from the floor to the roof, pulling the eye up with dramatic force.
IT WILL NEVER OUT OF STYLE
Known for its pointed arches, flying supports and detailed decoration, Gothic architecture is a style that will never go out of style. Gothic Revival, or neo-Gothic style, brings architectural elements and medieval design motifs back into fashion.
PUT IT AS AN ACCENT
You can even give a gothic impression by putting a stylish end-tapered door in your garden.
DECORATE IT WITH GREENERY
The exterior is more complex as style develops, decorative art tends to replace structural matters. At this time you can also combine gothic door styles with green plants on your porch.
COMPLEXITY IS AN ART
Complex reliefs around the portals and doors also become gothic architectural characters. This complexity signifies a high artistic taste.
MORE HIGH MORE SPACE
Gothic architects channeled the weight of the roof along the ribs of the ceiling, across the walls to a flying buttress (a semi-arch), and then down vertical supports (piers) to the ground. In effect, the roof no longer depended on the walls for support. As a result, the walls of a Gothic architecture could be built a lot higher, which made the building even more awesome, they could be a lot thinner, which created more interior space. They could contain more windows which led to brighter interiors and, where stained glass art was used.
Before there is gothic style building is more like dark, cold and damp. Gothic architecture tried to solve some of these unpleasant problems and created light, pleasant and airy buildings. Before the goth, architecture was only about the functional. Now, architecture has become more beautiful.
