The homeowners of this lovely Concord home wanted to convert an unused screen porch into a year-round garden room, suited to both formal entertaining and daily use by the family.
In designing the garden room, the architect integrated arches and curves, reflecting earlier work on the front entry and created a sun-drenched garden room. A barrel vaulted, coffered ceiling room with pilasters, which lends itself to formal entertaining, was offset by glass, veneered rustic stone and radiant heated floors giving the room a warm and family-friendly quality.
Rain chains add a whimsical touch to the copper gutters at the doors leading in from the garden.
A dormer with an extended elliptical window intersects the copper clad shed roof. A new rear porch provides entry to the tiled mudroom with cherry cubbies adding visual warmth, a bench seat and functional storage.
