True Creation of Harmony & Balance

Railing detail - Harmoniously working with the landscape
In the American Heritage Dictionary, one of the definitions of balance is ‘A harmonious or satisfying arrangement or proportion of parts or elements, as in design.’ However, achieving balance does not occur from simply designing the ordinary. As in the case of one of Bilowz Associates Inc. recently completed projects, both the hardscape and the railing detail create balance in such a way; it harmoniously works with the surrounding landscape.

As you can see in the image above, the set of steps with the railing provide an aesthetic and functional element. In the image below, the steps are completed but it is this sleek railing detail that offers a much easier approach to and from the beach; unobtrusive yet tastefully designed. It is important to note that very few flat pieces for stone steps were brought in – most were culled through and reused from the site. It was originally just ocean rip rap. 
Rocks without the Railing Detail

From beginning to end, it is the flow that is proportionally arranged to create harmony and balance.

Take a peek back at our July post, ‘Stately It Is’ where this coastal project was recently highlighted in the summer issue of Home Remodeling Cape Cod, the Islands and the South Coast. The design 101 lesson this Friday - when designing your project, from beginning to end, it is the flow that is proportionally arranged to create harmony and balance.
