This fireplace is in the breezeway of this dogtrot floor plan. With some careful design, this space could be enclosed with glass doors for use in the cooler months and opened completely for warmer months.
Barn Style Home. Large barn doors open to the open dogtrot entry area. (A dogtrot is an open breezeway, and dogtrot houses are common in Lowcountry.) Large screens are stashed in pockets so the entire opening can be screened, letting the breeze through without letting in the bugs.
