This single-family house is located on a busy street in an urban infill setting. The 4-bedroom house sits between two new, large neo-traditional houses. In stark contrast to the neighboring houses perched on the hill, this modern house is carved into the site to minimize its scale and enhance its privacy.
The project was completed in 2009
To the rear of the site (south) the contiguous living spaces open to a private backyard with views of the city skyline beyond
The composition and articulation of the architecture is modern in form and line, but is warm and textured in its materials. The palette consists of cedar, stone, zinc, and unpainted stucco. Portions of the steel structure are expressed where, along with the large expanses of glass, they contrast with the textured and earthy qualities of the stone, wood, and stucco.
The home is cladded in a Metal Siding.
VMZINC's Flat lock panel is a wall cladding system that uses overlapped metal panels so that a nearly flat appearance is achieved. VMZ Flat lock panels offer a simple yet elegant cladding solution characterized by a longitudinal seam on a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal bias
The living rooms sofa's and chairs are by B & B Italia.
