One can not help but think of Frank Lloyd Wright's use of the broad, sheltering roof on his prairie style houses. Linked below is the Robie House in Chicago, Illinois, USA. It has extended roof lines that provide an attached "pavilion" or porch roof.


Butterfly roofs must be designed carefully to avoid leaks. If both sections of the roof meet at the center of the building, adequate flashing must be installed. Using the butterfly roof to collect water at one point can be a valuable design element in arid locales.
