mansard cottage

Isaac Kremer/ September 9, 2018/ / 0 comments

Throughout 1870-80 the cottage with a mansard roof was referred to as a French cottage, and historians link this cottage to the development of the Second Empire style. In vernacular design the French cottage was less Second Empire than the design of high-style buildings, and it was more generally French. One could argue that it was a hybrid affair with Italianate features, and that over time it absorbed other kinds of cottage detailing. Photo from Metuchen, New Jersey, 2022.
