another house. another veranda

PORTICO-HOUSE_06

Some time ago, I shared a very Irving-Gill-dependent rectangular home with a wrap-around arcaded veranda.  Today, I’m offering a new take on that plan – taking a cue from the Shingle Style and rounding out the corners of the veranda, and subsuming the whole under a large, steeply pitched hip roof.  Here, the veranda is more closely tied to the rectangular volume behind it, rather than merely acting as a stand-alone wrapper.  Personally, I find both equally interesting, but I’ll let you take your pick.
