28 Exterior Shingles Roof Material Brick Siding Material Design Photos And Ideas

"We bumped up the roof line in two spots to create dramatic ceilings in the living area and flood the rooms with light," explains Hannah. "The brick and hardboard were then painted black, and we added cedar siding to add depth."
Beautifully renovated, the home has excellent curb appeal with low maintenance landscaping.

Hide&Seek Game. Location of the windows and their size is not designer’s imagination.
However, in this architectural project, you can feel reasonable composition.
Preserved and repointed brick along with repaired exterior trim and a fresh coat of paint breathe new life into the historic home. The roof is asphalt shingle.
Dunin and her team repurposed recycled brick to match the original material on the exterior of the home. Brick was also used to build privacy walls that would still bring in light and air.
The traditional facade does little to hint at the apartment's modern aesthetic.
"Upon arrival, you enter straight off Abbott Kinney into a calm room where members check in," Sutherland says. "The interior is simple, elegant, and inviting."
The first task at hand was to open up and vault the ceilings. The architects added floor-to-ceiling windows, which allowed the home to take full advantage of its amazing views.
The roofline of the addition has a double pitch; a tall, slim window punctuates the side. High sand content in the mortar gives it a yellowish tint that contrasts with the bricks.
YUN Architecture carefully restored the exterior of the house with new windows, dormers, and wood frames.
Gridded steel frame windows were added throughout the home to provide natural daylight to a city dwelling, unique for a London Residence of this type.

The renovated industrial compound is clad in metallic bronze-glazed bricks from Modular Clay Product, which match the neighboring Victorian terrace homes. The reflective bricks change in appearance as the sun moves through the sky, but always echo the Bronze Casements by Vale windows.

Wynants grew up sailing, and he created the piece to suggest “a moment of togetherness...the way one might gather at the back of the boat, to talk and drink.” A side view of the house captures a glimpse of what he calls “the monolith.”
“If you want to respect the old, the contrast should be brutal. I want to be very clear what is old and what is new.” —Dirk Wynants

To provide maxizing privacy and natural light penetration for their clients, Belgium-based DMVA Architects created a frontage composed of “knitted” bricks, which bring light and air into the home.
The house features one master bedroom upstairs, two guest bedrooms, and two separate guest apartments downstairs that Wynants rents out. “Farming has become a very difficult trade. Prices are historically low and agritourism is something invented to give farmers the possibility to have an extra income,” says Wynants, who grows hops on his land. “The formula has had huge success; in the last years the tourism capacity of this area has multiplied many times.”
“To be able to respect the ‘massiveness’ of the roof, making bigger windows would be wrong, because we would lose the character of the farm,” Wynants explains. “Therefore, I was looking for other ways to collect light. At this spot you had the big barn doors at both sides: This is the economical axis of the farm. This I kept, as my own design office is right under this volume. It keeps the sun out, so I have a splendid view when I’m working—I never need sun shades.”
