Why in the north of Europe does not build square houses: this rule is remembered from them, but forgot from us


I do not know why, but we practically do not pay attention to our shape of the house. First of all, look at the square, and the form for many is absolutely not important. I happened to hear even from many famous architects: they say the most important area, the number of rooms and the number of rooms that customers want, and then we will reflect, I will miss — everyone will be satisfied.

Meanwhile, in the near and far Zabugie, the form of the house is determined primarily. And this is primarily due to the fact that in the cold Finnish region, Norwegian, the Swedishchin almost does not build square houses.

Almost everywhere or rectangles or more complex forms: F-shaped, T-shaped, M-shaped. Square houses appear only in those regions that are located closer to the Mediterranean Sea, that is, where more solar days a year. Even in Germany, with his «square practical practical,» built into the immutable principle, it would seem everywhere there should be square houses — the Germans love practicality.

And here is not!

They also have the same thing as the northern neighbors!

But we have recently, people are totally built up with cottage villages with square houses: 6 * 6, 7 * 7, 10 * 10, 12 * 12.

There are unicumes that put boxes 18 * 18 in three floors with an attic, basement. But then, when the tax arrives and the expense for heating such a halapka in 1290 square meters for two orders, the owner stands on his pentagon’s pantage and understands:

Mdaaa, something I got excited.

By the way, if you go somewhere away, in the vintage villages of the Urals and Siberia, rectangular houses are again in front of the eyes — the fifty-five-lane cuts.

There are squares, but they are units.


What did you know before everywhere and what do we forget?

What is the difference between a square home and rectangular?

In fact, everything is very very simple. And the material about this rule is in many textbook textbooks, architecture. True, it turns out that many domestic specials this lecture and the paragraph in the book missed.

Square — Self-trying, equivalent figure, inside which makes a feeling that everything is at hand, so the house seems more compact. The rectangular house — creates a movement in the inner space.

Look at the photo below:

This is a typical «hut» of not very rich Finn 126 square meters residential and not very square. What is her plus. Surprisingly, their even a few and this will not be able to give any square house:

The latter is very important. The rectangular house is easier to focus on the site so that the most facade with the «front» windows goes to the sunny side, while only one sidewall with economic premises will look at the shadow and weathered side.

From the roof of the square house, it is problematic to do a water and snow-tap problem, and therefore the roof of the square home always carries an increased snow load.

The owner of such a house has to constantly clean the snow around the entire house or organize snowstores and pray that his roof all the roof roofs and one day he will not be afraid under the collapsed mega-snowdrobe.

But the square house is best adapted for warm regions, as it is best accumulating the cold from the air conditioner, and the terrace or the roof with a large removal will give the desired during the heat of the shadow around the whole house.

And what kind of form do you like more?

Square or rectangle?
