Shapes and forms exist in space, which is the emptiness or area between, around, above, below or within objects. Space refers to the area that a shape or form occupies. It also refers to the background against which we see the shape or form. Space can be defined as positive and negative. The positive space of a design is the filled space in the design—often it is the shapes that make up the design. Negative space is the background. The negative space in design is as important as the positive area .
Organizing and enhancing of space
Organization of space is basic in modern architecture home planning and interior decoration.
A sense of the beauty of space makes us want large undecorated walls and floors which bound space without disturbing its effect.
Appreciation of space may lead to using a small amount of furniture and arranging it in groups, so that we can have some empty silent spaces in our rooms.
The present trend is for space to become free and less obstructed throughout a house.
Indoor space seems increased by means of few partitions and larger openings between rooms.
Indoor space seems also to connect with limitless outdoor space by use of glass walls, large openings and porches.
The landscape designer, as well as the architect, organizes the space in the garden so that the result is livable, functional and completely integrated with the house.
