Stucco Columns and Pilasters

Stucco Columns and Pilasters
Here is a great use of columns, which at the top turn into pilasters, but also have arches between. The columns are all evenly spaced and identical, effectively using repetition as an architectural feature. Instead of simply terminating the columns and having a wall above it, the architect built out the section above the columns and had pilasters installed - countinuuing the look having the roof supported by the columns.
Arches were applied to the surface between the columns to give the impression their all supporting one another. The windows behind the columns use an EIFS molding in conjunction with a stone wall, displaying a contrast between their smooth surface and the rough stone.
You'll also notice the pilasters on either sides of the dormers.
