The Mediterranean Railing as Focal Point

Submitted by patricia on

The perfect marriage between form and function, Atlantic Aluminum's belly picket railing design offers home owners and businesses another opportunity to highlight the architectural details of their property. Typically, railing dissolves into a building's facade. You would notice if the railing was absent, but usually the railing is not the focal point of building. Mediterranean Railing or Belly Picket Railing creates a point of reference for the eye; it organizes the architectural elements of a building into a cohesive unit.

The picture of this home exemplifies this concept. The bowed railing unites the color and shapes of the other aspects of the home's exterior. The color of the brick, the columns, the windows and the flashing, compliment each other. Likewise, the shape and texture of the aluminum railing creates a healthy contrast against the brick while maintaining an organized flow between the balconies and the lower level.

Even though Mediterranean or Belly railing is more ornate than its cousins, it doesn't overwhelm the exterior. Atlantic Aluminum specializes in architectural details and understands how different railing styles can alter a building's presence. Belly railing is one railing style with characteristics of the modern Mediterranean aesthetic of proportion and symmetry.
