Callaway Cottage tropical-exterior
 

Callaway Cottage

“Its architecture is drawn from the vernacular houses of the early decades of this century. Part New England and part southern, it has a certain sober symmetry and a stepped-up classical portico with Doric columns. Inside, however, the house is akin to an ocean-going yacht. Doors are tongue-and-groove. Cabinets and furniture are handcrafted, either built in or bolted down, as if to protect them in a sudden squall. Storage is in wall compartments and floor "hatches." Decks are teak. The place is at once shipshape and rather sophisticated."
-Excerpt from House and Gardell Magazine, July, 1998

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"Order." In classical architecture, the order refers to whether a building is designed as Doric, Ionic, Corinthian or Composite. These design systems were first developed by the ancient Greeks and then used and modified by the ancient Romans. In short, each order defined a system of proportion, scale, decoration and use. In today's world architects modify and use a classical order to suit a particular design need. Adherence to strict rules about when and how to use each order has fallen by the wayside.Tell us: What's your favorite piece of design speak?
