What Houzz contributors are saying:
Transition SpaceWe need transition spaces in our homes, whether they’re called porches, lanais, engawas or porticoes. These spaces that are neither indoors or out mediate grade changes, buffer climatic changes and protect us from the elements. The dogtrot layout has a transition space built in as a natural function of the plan. The roofed breezeway serves as an entry porch, a sitting deck and a gateway between house and site.
A strong line of sight is established by well-considered placement of each pavilion set on an axis just off center from a beautiful old tree. I strongly believe that the landscape is the architect's most trusted and loyal companion!
