Thanks to the owners’ desire to use reclaimed materials, the roof and exterior walls are covered with recycled, corrugated steel panels that are natural and have an organic feel. The rusty, weathered finish is a natural patina that the homeowners wanted to highlight. At each end of the building, reclaimed planks from snow fencing were used to panel the wall, adding another texture and extra interest to the exterior surface. The gabion wall that is filled with stones does double duty as an architectural element as well as a privacy screen for the pool area in the yard beyond.
Of course, this is not a design marriage for the faint of heart. One would have to be daring in order to have the nerve to try it. Obviously, it is best to attempt this only under the supervised watch of a skilled design architect. The good news is that you can have the best of both worlds —modern and traditional.
