One of the pleasures of living on Maryland’s Eastern Shore is the informality and accessibility of living outdoors. Screen porches complement outdoor living, with their unbroken views, natural ventilation, and protection from sun, insects and rain. For this project, the clients wanted to add a screened porch where they could grill, eat and entertain outdoors in one open space, and minimize intrusion to the fabric of the existing house.

To meet these objectives, the design incorporates what are the typical elements of a conventional great room - a kitchen, dining & living areas and a fireplace - but transforms that idiom by stripping away the walls, creating a dramatic, screened extension to the house.
