A quiet strength. A love of history and community. A celebration of the everyday, of life, of nature, of the handmade. A circle of use and re-use. It’s simple. It’s beautiful. It’s real. It’s a porch. A humble structure that turns its face in welcome to the neighbourhood, provides extra living space for a young family and reclaims the front yard from cars and driveways. It’s by Texan architect John Grable.
