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.
The helical staircase is not just a functional element in the design of the house but also a sculptural feature which increases its visual appeal and overall elegance while remaining space-efficient. Its main role is that of offering access to the two mezzanine platforms. There’s one at either end of the structure and each has its own function. One of the platforms serves as the main sleeping area while the other is a workspace.
