Shingle style

Shingle style

(1880–1895)
A style that featured an eclectic American adaptation of New England forms to the structuralism of the Victorian era. Structures were de-emphasized by a uniform covering of entire surfaces of the roof and walls with monochromatic shingles; the eaves of the roofs are close to the walls so that they emphasize the homogeneous shingle covering. The houses in this style were rambling and horizontal and featured wide verandas and hipped roofs. In 1876 the centenary of the American Revolution encouraged a revival of Colonial Georgian with shingle cladding, gambrel roofs, dormers, oriels and other elements of the Queen Anne style, resulting in the shingle style; many had open planning inside, anticipating later works by Frank Lloyd Wright and Greene and Greene.

Shingle style
An American eclectic style of domestic architecture especially used from about 1880 to 1900; the Old English style, in using tiles rather than wood shingles, can be considered a prototype. Houses in this style are usually rambling and often asymmetrical in plan, with the exterior walls covered with unpainted wood shingles that emphasize the shingled surface and the horizontal aspects of the house; large porches set within the main structure or forming part of it; multilevel eaves with little overhang; occasionally, a tower having a conical or bell-shaped roof, usually topped with a finial; occasionally an eyebrow dormer; prominent arches at entryways. This style used in the latter part of the 20th century is sometimes referred to as the New Shingle style.
