Home: 1912 Porch 2021
Julia Gabler
This three-season porch extends the interior of my 1912 house into the backyard and formalizes a new, light-filled procession into my home.The design team, Alchemy Architects, and I carefully considered the flexibility and functionality of the space. Vinyl windows transform into screens making it a cozy refuge in the fall and spring and an insect-free zone in the summer. Larger groups are accommodated by additional outdoor seating on the attached two tier deck and evenings are enhanced by a Jøtul gas fireplace.The design was driven by considerations for a new landscape approach and the idea of opening up the current house to the outdoors. The angular roofline is flashed with patinated weathering steel, balancing the front roofline which had been previously remodeled in 2015 now with the back creating an eye catching view for those passing by.
