Spatial Composition – A study in interior layouts
Spatial composition is a key component of any interior design. You need to be able to efficiently manipulate the given space in order to design it under all the restrictions of space constraints. It is a hard task, that takes a lot of time and thinking, but if you work hard, then you can definitely become good at it. Most interior spaces come with an already predetermined envelop, and it is a challenging task to take that predetermined space and mold it according to your ideas. Spatial composition consists of architectural and furniture layouts that need to be specifically drafted and set up in a floor plan in order to maximize the efficacy of the value of any given space. If the fixtures fit, and if the client is satisfied, the details are drafted and the furniture and detailing is carved out to fit the given space like a glove. Today we will be taking a close look at a few especially well designed spatial compositions in interior designs.
Of rope lights and bright whites
This interior layout is extensively symmetrical and well established. It is not only the congregation of a well thought out texture and material palate, but also an integration of clever lighting techniques that set it apart from most other interior settings. The style is just the right amount of modern and contemporary with a touch of minimalism, and the placement of the fixtures is ideal – all proportion and harmony.
Of tall ceilings and sheer fabrics
Mirrored or back to back, this interior design is deliciously symmetrical with bold contemporary looks and a furniture layout that may have seemed a bit hokey on paper but works all the better in practicality. The seating space doubles in this layout, while retaining the integrity of the modern style.
Of glass in between
This may not be a typically conventional interior layout, but the cleverly designed media wall, along with the strategic use of textures and colors make for a rather pragmatic small style living room design – it is not cluttered, and still symmetrical.
Of blacks and whites
A monochromatic theme is hard to apply – you need to be extremely careful in order to balance out each hue. If you look at the layout below, you would notice the perfect visual harmony between each and every piece of furniture; there are no blind spots in this scheme, layout or otherwise.
Of asymmetry and harmony
This layout is both symmetrical and asymmetrical at the same time. While the furniture layout has a perfectly balanced elevation, the texture and patterns are what play on the asymmetry – but even in that dissimilarity, there is a certain rhythm – a harmony that balances out the simplicity of this layout.
