View into kitchen from patio

This early 1900's stone and brick house had a cramped kitchen and a rear entrance addition that blocked views to the yard. We were asked to enlarge the kitchen, add an area for a breakfast table and improve the entry. By demolishing the existing rear entrance, we were able to create a large addition that houses a new mudroom, kitchen and breakfast room. The addition is long and narrow to preserve several mature Japanese maples, visible through the breakfast room bay. The addition mimics the roof lines of the house, but is clad in wood shingles, siding and a coated copper roof to distinguish it from the main house and recall the family’s Maine coast cabin. A clerestory above the cooking area provides ample light throughout the year, and provides passive cooling. Windows and doors open the large interior volume to the maple, the outdoor garden and patio.

I love the roof. Reminds me of Parisian rooftops. What is it and where

This is a kitchen addition in Philadelphia. The "lantern" on the roof lets in daylight, and the remote-controlled windows open for ventilation.

Can I buy the plans? Sq footage? I live in key west. Can I just use any siding?

Sorry, we don't sell plans - this addition (like most) was designed to suit a particular site. The size is about 550 square feet. I suggest you talk to a local builder in Key West who can advise you on best siding for conditions there!
