Screen Porch nearing completion

Screen Porch Photo

You’ve seen this porch before in previous posts (1, 2), and it is just about complete.

Screen Porch Interior

The interior is lofty and open, with strong visual connections to the adjacent gardens. Our design intent was to create an interior space that maintained both a sense of connection and a sense of shelter. Screen panels were strategically located to create two distinct spatial zones inside: a dining area (focused outwardly) and a seating area with a stronger interior focus. This photo shows the latter, with space for artwork and furniture to nest against the walls, protected from the elements.

Interior View

This shot shows the openness of the future dining area, with a small deck just outside the screens. Existing the home from the door at your left, you are greeted with a framed view of the backyard gardens prepared by the Owner, who is a Master Gardener. I’ll get a shot of that when the project is finished and the yard is in full bloom next year.
