A House in Its Place

As the Ryans’ previous home had two front doors, architect Jessie Carroll
wanted to give the family a single, more protected entry and came up with
this idea of an updated take on the porte cochere. “We tried
to make the most of each design move,” she says. “The portal with the
dormer above is doing multiple things: it’s your entry sequence, it’s your
cover to unload the groceries, and it’s a place to park the kids’ bikes.”
