My earthy, contemporary homeContemporary Exterior
What Houzz contributors are saying:
More porches are found at the rear of the house, on either side of a substantial brick wall that is a strong datum line from front to back. This wall defines the separation between the two major volumes, between living (here on the left) and bedrooms (on the right); a gallery with stairs sits between them. This view also shows the carport, which is linked to the house and its back foyer by a covered walkway. The house and carport define an outdoor space for which a swimming pool is planned.The intersection of the volumes, porches and materials visible in this view really drives home the contemporary/modern nature of the design. It's interesting to hear Barzenick say that "modern architecture speaks to me at a visceral level. I appreciate and admire the plantation and Acadian-style homes, but contemporary architecture speaks to me on another level."
