The normal height for a verandah is from 2100 for colonial styles through to 2400 for neo Georgian styles. Spacing of the columns is very important if spacing is too wide then the proportions may become weak and innefective. the best proportions are acieved when the space is roughly square. 1.5 times the height for the centre to centre dimension is normally too wide.
PORTICOS The portico provides shelter at the front entrance and it provides a measure of scale so that the building facade achieves balance and sets the scale for the other architectural elements on the facade. It is important that the size of the portico is considered carefully, the diameter and height of the columns can make the entire facade more effective.If the columns are set too widely apart then a less elegant effect is achieved. The best proportion for a portico is the golden section (1:1.618), a formula that dates back to ancient Greece.We recommend that clients use this as a starting point as well as the width required for the easy movement of two people side by side. Our Grand Tuscan portico is designed for easy installation and best detailing.
