New Contemporary Rain Porch Home in Florence, SC

Share Button

A contemporary home we designed is coming out of the ground in Florence, SC.  It is for two doctors and we have designed an updated “rain porch” home.  This is a unique architectural style from the Pee Dee Region where the home is being built.  For the porches on these homes the columns go from the ground to the roof and the porch is pulled back from these so the edges of the porch don’t get wet during a storm.  Therefore the name “Rain Porch” home.  The home is being built by Jody Lane and ReMark Studio is the landscape architects on the job.

Ledoux explored visionary architecture based on simple geometry.  Below is one of his famous series of buildings The Royal Saltworks of Arc-Et-Senans, this illustrates how over 250 years ago he created radical work based on marrying rationality and aestheticism.  It has a radius of 185 meters which has five buildings comprising the arc and five others the diameter.  Nine paths cross and converge on the director’s house in the middle.vue_aerienne_medium
