Among these is the very concept of having a porch that is an extension of the interior space. In addition, the massing of a proportionally tall house speaks more of isolation than of the construct of meaningful social spaces through a series of houses enclosing the street. The PorchDog addresses these challenges while complying with new environmental, structural, and FEMA regulations.Save this picture!© Timothy HursleyThe Porchdog house is raised above the ground and essentially open at the ground level, but still incorporates a stoop that serves as a street level porch. The only other ground-level elements are an entry stair, enclosed storage volume, a parking area and a stair descending from the rear deck. The concrete block storage volume is separated from the entry stair to facilitate a transparent reading of the ground plane and developed landscape elements in the rear yard. Save this picture!sectionThe Porchdog house is a refuge that still opens itself to the social structure of the city, addressing the challenges of retaining a porch that is an extension of the interior space and overcoming the massing of a proportionally tall house, while providing the requisite protection from a potential Category 4 storm surge event. Primary materials include all steel construction with exterior metal cladding, and bamboo flooring at the interior. Operable perforated metal shutters provide light control and storm security for aluminum framed window walls at East and West elevations.Save this picture!exploded axonProject gallerySee allShow lessPlinthos / mab architectureArticlesHydrogen House / !ndie ArchitectureArticles Share Save this picture!© Timothy Hursley+ 22 Share “COPY” Architects: Marlon Blackwell Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project Porchdog House / Marlon Blackwell Architect CopyAbout this officeMarlon Blackwell ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBiloxiHousesUnited StatesPublished on February 06, 2011Cite: “Porchdog House / Marlon Blackwell Architect” 06 Feb 2011.
