Recently I had the opportunity to go to the Atlanta Modern Architecture Home Tour. What an inspiration. Here are some of the fabulous porches and terraces I saw.
This front screened room floats above the carport below. The horizontal architectural elements give the home a wonderful modern style while also making a strong visual line that creates a real sense of privacy for those on the porch. Lovely design.
By adding this high wall and ceiling, the architect creates privacy from the back while still maintaining a connection to the street, inviting neighbors to stop and visit. I always find it interesting that when a space is delineated like this it feels bigger because of the accentuated height. The homeowners had just moved in. I’m sure they will have a good time selecting just the perfect piece of artwork for their wall.
