03 Venetian Gothic Arch Pilaster Columns/ Landmark Residence/ Fort Laudedale

The Venetian Gothic Arch was designed by Dale as an open arch, a window frame, or as a filled element as seen here. The infill is separate from the dentil molding on the outside and can be applied to glass or stone.

The pineapple columns used for this installation have been rotated to a forty-five degree angle. The columns are more than half way off the three inch thick pilaster back and are cast as one piece. The capital was carved in solid mahogany by Michael Dow of www.architectural woodcarving.com and molded and cast by dale. The true taupe pigments used in the cement are complemented by shards of brick and brick dust that give the castings a rustic flavor.

The sills, corbels and lintel across three windows accentuate the horizontal of this tiny Fort Lauderdale Landmark Residence.
