About International Style Architecture

International style architecture is characterized by a lack of extraneous ornament, precision detailing and craftsmanship, floor to ceiling windows and doors and simple hardware. It is a difficult style to execute and demanding in terms of maintenance, but for the truly elite and avant garde, a necessity.

International Style Mouldings

The International style does not use mouldings to cover construction joints, shim spaces, irregular surfaces, etc. Metal plastering and gypsum board accessories such as the "J-mold" and "corner bead" are used to create straight, clean edges. The style is unforgiving of sloppy craftsmanship. Bauhaus style details involve a high degree of precision and careful setting of the wooden parts prior to finish-plastering or taping. Finished woodwork, where used at all, is usually made up of S4S rectangular shapes, sometimes with routed edges to create a reveal or shadow line between surfaces.
