Stucco and Cedar Planking Give Modern Home's Exterior the Appearance of Sophistication and Restraint
Composed of crisply-detailed, considered materials, surfaces and finishes, the home is a balance of sophistication and restraint. The two-story massing is designed to allow for a bold yet humble street presence, while each single-story wing extends through the site, forming intimate outdoor and indoor spaces. The upper story is clad in stucco, articulated as a floating white box, light in appearance and also acting as a veritable “tree house” for the children’s bedroom zone. The knots in the exposed portion of the wood add a desired texture and contrast to the clean and minimal massing of the white stucco.
The materials used in this home have been selected to reflect the sunlight and reduce the heat island effect, as evidenced by the light colored stucco, natural stone and single-ply rolled roofing for the flat roofs.
