In traditional residential architecture in the United States, the transition between outside and inside happens via the porch. It provides shelter from the elements, a place to sit down, and a subtle indication that what lies beyond is somebody’s private domain.

The photos that follow highlight entrance canopies, overhead elements that can receive myriad treatments.
