Shingle style definitions

Britannica Concise

In the U.S., a style of wood-shingle-covered domestic architecture of the 1870s and '80s. Among the finest examples are H. H. Richardson's Sherman House (1874-75), Newport, R.I., and Stoughton House (1882-83), Cambridge, Mass. The style grew out of the Queen Anne and Stick styles and was stimulated by a revived interest in colonial Amer. architecture. The small size of the shingle made it easy to cover a variety of shapes. Like the Stick style, the Shingle style is characterized by a free-flowing, open plan; open porches and irregular roof lines contribute to the picturesque or rustic effect. The style had a significant influence on F. L. Wright.
