We developed the springtime porch design. This Federal styled house demanded a rear porch that followed its symmetries and simple grandeur. A seating area and outdoor fireplace was centered on the interior living room, one corner is canted back to allow for vehicular traffic, while double columns resolve the geometry to center the door. Detailing with stained concrete, matching brick and herringbone chimney caps gives the addition a sense of belonging to the original house and tries to uplift the original design with openness and dignity.
Want to see the design in motion? Welcome. See the movie on YouTube. Come on up to the porch and have a seat beside the fire. Coffee?
Also, you can look back to the original design sketch.
