This modern home has stunning curb appeal! Even from the outside, lofty, bright spaces on the inside are apparent. The unique shape of the left wall is most noticeable: The barrel-shaped structure creates a modern yet cozy feel.
The stone facade of this seemingly small home hides a multitude of space inside. A stone walkway leading to a simple door makes the space feel homey from the very start, and the pitched wood roof feels oh-so-rustic. The large plot with mature trees is a perfect setting for a quiet getaway.
The existing landscape provided a challenge, but also the opportunity to design outdoor living spaces on several levels. The flat-roofed family room needed a pitched roof to blend with the existing house, but the roof, along with the turret, couldn’t block existing windows. To accomplish the homeowners’ vision, interior walls had to be removed, but they were constructed of clay blocks, which supported two-story block walls above. We continued the 16:12 pitched roof over the existing family room, but shifted it back to allow light into the third-story window. The same pitched roof covers the garage addition, but a reverse gable with paneled accents provides interest and a carriage house feel.
This Beverly Hills home features Tudor Revival-style diamond-shaped window panes and a steeply pitched roof, though the selection of gray shingles and white board and batten siding offer an updated look.
This blush pink home features a low pitched roof with multiple roof lines, iconic of the Arts & Crafts movement. A large front porch overlooks a manicured lawn, while trimmed hedges offer orderly curb appeal.
