The wall mural cut cherrywood, designed by the plant architect to transform the entrance to the attic, is itself attractive.
But it's not just a cool thing.
Looks like art.
Because the murals are actually three.
Dimensional representation of the basic mathematical equation known as the Fibonacci sequence.
As Walter Craig, a homeowner and math professor, explains, Fibonacci is a very simple principle that contains the world: it's a digital model, each of the numbers is the first two numbers 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, etc.
However, from natural form to complex computer algorithms and data analysis, it dominates everything, such as the chamber of the Nautilus shell or the seed thread on the sunflower.
The graph depicts a pair of spiral with uniform expansion and intersection as a three-
The dimensional expression of the Fibonacci formula, and the range on the two panels of the 90 degree angle, deepen the challenge of Edwards and Wilson's Dave Edwards, build the main cabinet maker for murals and all cherry wood products in the suite.
"The Corner alone is very complicated," Craig said admirably . ".
Professor Craig and his wife, dildrere, are both members of the School of Mathematics at Hamilton McMaster University.
But when he became head of the Field Research Institute, a math think tank at the University of Toronto, and began to speak regularly there, the couple chose to buy the cake in the chocolate factory building to avoid the brutal Hamilton Daily. Commute to Toronto.
"We looked at a couple of lofts in the West End, but we really enjoyed this-it's a corner unit with views of the park in the north and the skyline in the east, so it's very bright . "Craig says.
There are heritage buildings across the street, new townhouses next door, and there is no chance that someone will come and build another building to block their sight-in the increasingly crowded city center, this is a big consideration.
But there are some problems.
While they love the open, sunny nature of the attic, they want to create a clearer space for visiting family and guests in this unit. And standard-
Problems with the apartment, such as kitchen cabinets built without distinction, dark and crowded entrance hall and ugly main bathroom, mean that some updates are normal.
Most of the renovations include upgraded lighting and kitchen cabinets.
Throughout the attic, the cherry is used for its warm color and delicate texture, forming a beautiful contrast to the exposed metal pipe and yellowbrick walls (
It is almost certain that Paterson Candy Co. , Ltd. , a chocolate maker in Dangdang
(Original factory built in 1912).
Project Record architect Lisa Rapoport and project manager Jason van de Burg, who works at crags house in Hamilton, immediately realized that what the apartment needs is intelligence and imagination, rather than a lot of expensive redesigns.
This leads to some pleasant creative conversations, and it seems like a natural choice to add a little bit of mathematical knowledge to the design.
Rapoport recalled that it started in the bathroom.
In discussing the options for tile patterns, Dierdre mentioned Fibonacci, and from there, the concept is extended in exponential form.
"We started looking for other ways to introduce the idea," she said . ".
"For example, the sliding door of the partition of the room seems to be an obvious place.
But when we reconfigure the entrance and realize that there is space to create the wall feature, we know it can be very dramatic.
"The tiles in the small guest rooms bathroom are simple and attractive, and they are dotted with small glass mosaics in pure white subway tiles.
The placement of the mosaic part looks simple: The glass tiles are placed vertically in the Fibonacci sequence and horizontally in the arithmetic sequence;
As the pattern around the room develops, even the tiny glass bricks themselves will become larger.
In a way, this is to celebrate the beauty of pure mathematics.
It turns out that the attic is a big one-
The bedroom has a small platform on one side for a small study.
Rapoport and van de Burg removed the platform and extended the line of the entrance wall (
Bathroom and laundry included)
With a set of four sliding panels that can be folded up in one stack, create a large room, or split the attic neatly into two halves, create a comfortable study for the sofa bed or desk under the window.
This becomes the next manifestation of the mathematical theme: when the ridge glass inserts are close to the window, they become wider.
However, unlike the entrance mural, the math is not so neatly arranged, so the width here follows the arithmetic theme: each width is about 10 inch wider than the insert next to it.
The attic is not large, and the wall may be very spectacular when closed;
Making it fit into the overall composition of the space is another clever trick.
Most impressive, from the mural at the entrance to the last door at the far end, the whole area is made of a single blob or patchwork of a tree, so its grain is perfectly matched.
The uniformity of the grain makes the room feel open and airy when the door is piled up, and it feels comfortable and warm when the door is pulled in place.
Understanding mathematical references certainly adds to the fun of design, but it doesn't matter;
Even British graduates can appreciate the economic design of the room partition, which is great for students and others living in town with the couple, and also for the Fibonacci muralDr.
Craig himself, he is willing to explain in detail (
Even with charts and charts)
The mathematics behind the arrangement of tiles or the spiral of murals has a simpler reason for the design to be so effective.
"The main thing is," he said. "It's cool.
