521 Exterior House Concrete Siding Material Design Photos And Ideas

The upper volume reaches for the infinite view.
The house wraps itself around the historic tree while allowing the natural landscape to do the same around itself.
From the edge of the property the graceful entry and landscape gently slope around to a lower yard.
The entry portal shows itself to the public.
Neighborhood looks towards the site and house anchoring the landscape.
“After touring the factory, we could see that the working conditions looked safe and comfortable and that the building materials would stay dry at all times and go up quickly,” he says. “Traditional construction could have exposed our framing and flooring to the elements for weeks.”

The steepness of the site inspired architect Jan Šépka to raise the house by resting it on top of a single, stalk-like concrete column.
"Before the implementation, the beams were precisely cut on a 3D milling machine, and the construction was merely assembled like a construction set on-site," says Šépka.

Considered the largest of Frank Lloyd Wright’s experimental textile-block houses in Los Angeles, the Ennis House comprises over 27,000 concrete blocks stacked atop a concrete platform.

"The roof on the new modules has the same angle as the original hut, but reversed, giving value to the original project, while the new modules acquire a new identity inspired by the pre-existing architectural object," Alejandro says.
The pitched roofs are topped with CINDU metal cladding.

The master bedroom is enclosed on three sides, emphasizing the view outward, while the low-slung roof and deep eaves create a sense of horizontality. The bed, nightstands, and light shelf are made from white oak to match the floors; all were designed by the architects.
The sleeping quarters take advantage of their location at the end of the wings.  They are private spaces with unobstructed views.
Set on a 7.7-acre lot, the 3,400-square-foot residence is both spacious and compact with a natural flagstone facade and black-stained cedar framing.
The south facade showcases the third level addition and new wood, metal and concrete cladding materials.

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) was installed for the flat roofs.
Vertical cast-in-place concrete walls break up the building's horizontal forms.
Set between massive oak trees, the home was sensitively placed to minimize site impact.
"The roof of the lower level becomes the terrace of the upper level, with unobstructed views to the south," says principal architect Robert Swatt.
The updated rear of the home features a south-facing deck that's sheltered by the upstairs addition and connects to the main floor living spaces.
The house is, thanks to a new owner, in excellent, original condition.
Designed by a young Californian engineer named Val Powelson, the plans for the Maranz Residence were based on a principle that was the height of engineering innovation in the late 1950s: the hyperbolic paraboloid roof.
Approached from above, the home blends into the landscape thanks to an expansive green roof that's set on SOPREMA elastomeric waterproofing membrane. In winter, the house is disguised under a blanket of snow.
The covered parking pad is supported by an exposed concrete volume with (unseen) built-in storage. The concrete also provides protection against water runoff from the mountain.
The roofs are made of corrugated aluminum, and the timber sidings used at the entrance are repeated on key ceiling planes.
At the back of the property is a deliberately understated entrance, and a simple canopy that shelters the front door. This door opens onto a landing, from which a broad corridor follows the natural gradient alongside a generous garden courtyard.
"This distinctive sheltering shape is again expressed in the wrapped floor-wall-roof profile of the three wings, which—assembled together, one above the other—track the site as it slopes toward the water," says Philip Olmesdahl.
Glazed walls allow the interior living areas to be seamlessly connected to the outdoors.
Working within a tight footprint due to building restrictions, the two-story main building includes most of the bedrooms and communal spaces, with guest quarters placed in a separate structure.
"The wood establishes a very emphatic and directional rhythm that orders the project," says Eduardo Cadaval, one of the firm’s founders.
By creating lookouts in three different directions, residents are able to celebrate the home's unique natural setting no matter which room they are in.
The green roof makes the house look as if it’s camouflaged within its forest surroundings.
While the house was painted black to help it blend in with the landscape, the shrub-covered roof is the more prominent part of the overall design due to the verdant green surroundings.
The walls of the volumes are slightly extended to create sheltered outdoor decks.
Upcycled wood—sourced from fallen trees near the site—was used as part of the shrub-covered green roof.
Concrete was chosen as the primary material because of its high structural performance, low-maintenance, and how well it bridges the slope of the mountainous site.
The fourth floor takes the form of a complete white cube with no visible windows or apertures.
For this project, the architects have created a house that looks like a pavilion, in which several floors have neatly been hidden within the simple concrete "box" volume.
Windows of varying sizes punctuate the building, giving it a sculptural appearance.
The operable windows help let cooling breezes into the home—a necessity given the area's muggy tropical climate and the urban heat-island effect.

The upper building was renovated to house the master suite and adjoining studio.
