Granite and marble columns from natural stone
At all times granite and marble columns emphasized buildings’ greatness and elegance. Stone columns carry severe functional burden and were used in construction of temples, palaces and other important buildings.
Materials and colours
Toughness and durability of natural stone are proven for centuries. Only due to greeks and romans who made their columns from granite and marble, we have an opportunity to admire its’ beauty to this day.
Marble columns texture richness will accentuate delicacy of a building (both outside and inside) and owners’ refined taste. And columns’ severity and hardness will impart status and seriousness.
Characteristics and features
Classic stone column contains of several parts: base, body and cap. Under the base can be settled floor, pedestal or plinth (stylobate). Above the cap of classic stone column is situated abaca – plinth (or it’s imitation) with straight or figured edges. Column body can be flat or with cannelures (parallel gutters along the body), and also straight or with entasis (decreasing diameter from 1/3 high to top of the column). There are tubby column bodies too.
There are several types of stone columns: full column (left), halfcolumn – column that on 1/3 sunk in the wall (middle), wall pier (or “dummy column”) – flat column, outstanding from the wall for 1/8 – ¼ of its’ width (right).
Column of any type can be manufactured fully from stone or cover prepared form (metal, concrete or brick)with stone. This method helps to decrease costs.
Columns and halfcolumns are usually covered with radial segments or plinth. In last case the surface becomes faceted, but this type of cover will cost much cheaper.
Besides of using the columns in construction of public buildings, last years it became popular to apply columns in private houses construction. Stone columns can have different forms and sizes and look good even in small room.
