Modern Home Exterior Boasts Weathered Steel Panels
The front facade shows the Cor-Ten steel panels that wrap the second floor of this home. The panels, which were painted chocolate brown to hide the rust stains typically associated with weathered steel, have different types of bends and various amounts of circles. The type of space or wall behind the panel determined the type of panel used. If there was a window that needed light and some privacy, a panel with more holes was used, but if there was a wall of stucco, a panel with fewer holes was used.
Hardscaped pillars stand guard at the entrance to HGTV Dream Home 2010. The front walk is protected by a metal canopy that serves as a foil against the stucco and creates shadows and visual interest, especially at sunset.
