Like the Stick style, the Shingle style was named by Vincent J. Scully and is purely American in its development. Popular on the East Coast, it was supposedly influenced by the colonial architecture of New England. In fact, the style may have developed in reaction to the extreme decorative qualities of the Queen Anne.
Shingle-style residences are large, two-or three-story dwellings, the exteriors of which are almost completely covered with wooden shingles. Thus, they are a reaction to the exposed structural members of the Stick style. Utah examples often have wood construction above a stone or brick masonry base or first floor.
