A traditional trullo home in the town of Cisternino in Italy's Puglia region.
Arriving at The French Laundry, guests now begin their experience through a sequence of new garden spaces.
The client can enjoy the outdoors day or night via the screened porch and deck.
According to the architects, the screened porch panels (on the left) were site-built by the contractor to have similar dimensions as the Marvin windows (to the right). Dramatic black sashes unite the facade. Thin mull covers between window units blend with the exterior siding, "which afforded a consistency that we were after," said Wiedemann. Native stone on the foundation is similar to old Virginia farmhouses.
The exterior form and materials of the house echo historic farmhouses in the area, while the garage, clad in red board and batten, evokes old barns. Wiedemann reinterprets the function of a traditional cupola here, which was typically used to aid interior ventilation, by inserting a whole-house fan in this one.
The roof is continuous and rests on top of the structural stone walls.

The design reinforces the beauty of the site and the power of nature.
The house is a succession of three pavilions unified by a unique roof, with two covered patios.
Tremblay chose materials that would reflect the natural setting, like the Polylam-C cedar siding from Prorez, used at the home’s entrance. The exterior floor finish is Montauk grey slate.
Architect Joaquin Castillo blends inexpensive materials, the odd splurge, and a refined modernist sensibility to create an affordable weekend house for brothers Alfredo and Guillermo Oropeza. The facade is a juxtaposition of rough-hewn local stone, smooth concrete, glass, and steel—the material palette used throughout the structure.
This renovation was designed for a young family by Glasgow-based architect Andrew McAvoy of Assembly Architecture. McAvoy followed the original U-shape of the former residence by building two new energy-efficient houses, the first of which combines the original granite building with a new extension to provide an open-plan living area and three bedrooms.
The home’s location in Sterzing, Italy meant that it was surrounded by a rural green landscape, and the architects sought to change it as little as possible.
The deep fissure through the end gable of the home was due to settlement of sand below the ground, but it also gave the home its distinctive character.
The newly constructed wing consists of a combination of stones from existing walls on the property, wood siding, glazed panels, and a new roof.
Villa DL has small roofless courtyards, and central patio reminiscent of the types found in ancestral farmsteads in the nearby countryside.
Red stone walls, reminiscent of structures from medieval times, are used in the construction of this villa in Ourika Valley.
A home in South Korea designed like a large square box with the form of a small gabled house cut out to create a wide passageway.
The 1,553-square-foot, two-story brick house is sited on a plain and surrounding by houses with different silhouettes.
By reversing the positioning of the gabled roof form, and presenting and empty gabled space within the monolithic cube, he could create a parody of a “house” within the negative space.
The lake-facing side of the house is fitted with floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
The house dips down the slope, creating the impression of house that’s half sunk into the ground.

To integrate the former postman’s cottage with the new design, architect David Sheppard added a concrete column adjacent to an existing stone chimney and a new slate chimney “at the heart of the composition.” From this, the roof structure fans out; the small structure now serves as an anteroom.

Built in 1948 and named 'Toyhill' by Wright himself, this Usonian home is considered an artistic masterpiece and shows Wright's early interest in overlapping circular masonry, which would become an innovative and iconic treatment found in his later work—including the Guggenheim Museum.
The architecture at One Eudora Street observes Usonian ideals set forth by Frank Lloyd Wright, most notably cantilevered overhangs that shade curtain walls of floor-to-ceiling glass. The sweeping transparency frames views of the natural surroundings from nearly every room in the house, a dramatic feat of construction that took workers nearly two years to complete. Radiant-heating pipes were installed under all exterior walkways and patios to encourage year-round use and aid in snow removal, very unusual for the late 1940s.

Zoom out for a look at the modern exterior. From your dream house, to cozy cabins, to loft-like apartments, to repurposed shipping containers, these stellar projects promise something for everyone. Explore a variety of building types with metal roofs, wood siding, gables, and everything in between.
