Architecture is all about painting, photography and sculpture. Perhaps it is more interested in being useful to other artistic representations, but the design and aesthetics are equally important at all. One of the great examples of how the design meets featured in architecture is the ledge. This stylistic addition has been available since ancient times and continued graces the buildings even today.
Plaster cornice is a horizontal extension of a wall that is generally designed on the roof, but sometimes also between floors of a building. Generally molded and stylized acting like a decoration for the building.
A molding is traditionally applied around the upper part of the atmosphere at the height where the walls and ceiling meet. It tends to make a bridge and gives the room a neat, finished style. The crown molding is also used on top of windows, doors, cabinets and furniture.
Besides being part of the architectural design of a building, a cornice is designed to shake or divert rainwater.
The cornices are in ancient architectural structures or new buildings trying to recover old styles. Modern architectural mastery has finished with cornice and changed by elaborate systems of water flow.
