Shingle Style homes are a rarity these days. Created out of the mixing of English Tudor and American Colonialism, Shingle style homes first appeared around the turn of the century. Characterized by horizontal proportions and, as the name suggests, flat shingles on the home’s exterior, the homes began to crop up as beach homes for the well-to-do in New England. By the 1950s/1960s, however, they had fallen out of style.
Archiscapes, however, has decided its time for them to make a comeback – 30A style.
Our latest creation – a Shingle style gulf-front home along scenic highway 30A – broke ground last month and it’s sure to be a jaw-dropping house when it is done. Although I expect the build time to take a while, it’s going to be amazing to watch it grow.
Here is the rendering of what will someday appear. 🙂 Enjoy!
