Vernacular Style

Barrington Hall

Vernacular style in building is essentially derived from the local climate, materials and building traditions. It is practical and functional.

Vernacular influences have determined many of our iconic Southern forms: the “Shotgun” – so called because a central hall went all the way through and the “Dogtrot” – two rooms connected by a central porch open to cooling breezes (and popular with the dogs). These basic frontier forms evolved into the more refined homes of the Southern aristocracy with expansive central halls and encompassing verandahs that helped to cool the homes.

Barrington Hall in Roswell is a home that illustrates Southern Vernacular traditions.
