32 Exterior Metal Roof Material Brick Siding Material Design Photos And Ideas

The home presents a narrow facade to the street.
From the street, a discrete metallic wall features two green steel doors on either side.
Given the simplicity of the house’s brick façade—a seven-foot brick base with a massive gabled roof on top—the complex spatial geometry of the interiors comes as a surprise to visitors.
The owner—a ceramics artist—wanted to make the best of the topography of the lot, and also requested views of the site's nearby horse arena.
The house is composed of two volumes.
To enable the two families to live independently, and interdependently, Estudio A0 co-founder Ana María Durán Calisto came up with a 5,457-square-foot home that consists of two volumes, set in a Z formation.
A wooden screen provides privacy, and offers protection from the strong midday sun.

“The project reverses the traditional suburban pattern of a house centered on its site and surrounded by empty space,” says Beer. Instead of a lawn, it has three courtyards behind a brick wall.

Margarita McGrath and Scott Oliver of Noroof Architects termed the 1,650-square-foot house in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, “Pushmi-Pullyu,” in reference to the interior-exterior flow they created. Resident Jill Magid, pictured on her front steps with son Linus, is a conceptual artist; she fabricated the neon house numbers.
Brammy and Kyprianou hardly touched the front of their house, an 1880 sandstone and brick Victorian with galvanized iron ornamentation.
Originally conceived as a jewel box that would evoke precious objects and fine woodworking, Architect Natalie Donne envisioned, “a box covered with smooth and black material on the outside and blonde wood on the inside.” Large sheets of lustrous black fibrocement were assembled using fine rivets to form two connecting prisms, complete with large opening glass walls.

The den, originally and enclosed porch off the back of the house, was one of the biggest energy-sucking culprits. The designers opened it to the rest of the house to improve circulation, added a pentagonal Weather Shiel window, and clad the structure in metal panels matching the roof.
In Arlington, Virginia, a drafty house was made more than twice as efficient with the addition of metal both inside and out. Roof panels topping the brick envelope echo its original geometry.
