This brick column demonstrates a vertical line. The design of the column is that it shoots up from the floor, straight to the ceiling. This adds the effect of making the building look taller and draws the eye upwards.
These brick lines represent a horizontal line. This element of design draws the eye to the wall and makes the wall look longer. The brick pattern forms multiple horizontal lines on the wall, giving the wall decoration.
The angle at which the windows are placed forms multiple diagonal lines. This draws the eye from the red beams to the natural light from the windows. It also makes the ceiling of the building look taller due to the angle of the windows.
The design of the top of the wall surrounding the window represents a curved line. This allows more light to enter the building and gives the window character. It gives the impression of a large window, even when the window is actually small in size.
The repetition of the angled walls displays rhythm. This rhythm adds dimension to the room and draws the eye towards the center of the room. It also makes the ceiling appear higher up due to the angle of the top of the wall that travels upward.
