Introduction to Custom & Standard Model of Attic Bases
Attic Bases are classical elements used with Doric and all decorative
columns - Roman Corinthian, Roman Ionic, Scamozzi and
Temple of the Winds. Unlike the Tuscan Bases, they have two profiles
on the round section (torus) that are separated by a hollow concave molding (scotia).
They can be custom made as per your specifications or are available in standard models made from
molds. The products from molds are hollow with the columns load bearing through the shaft directly
to the substrate. Hardwood attic bases can be made for detailed historic reproduction.
Imperial can create custom reproductions for partial or whole Bases see Custom Attic Base Page
