House Geometry

A beefy chimney dominates the front of this 1960s-era house. Note how the blocky shape echoes other geometric features visible from the street. The chimney's width, for example, is in proportion to the spacing between posts on the front porch and the width of the front door with surround. Most houses have a built-in geometry, which the chimney plays into.
