35 Exterior Butterfly Roofline Wood Siding Material Design Photos And Ideas

Project Name: Martis - Dunsmuir
Winner of the 2011 Log House of the Year Award, the 1,206-square-meter Lokki, which was designed by as architect Kari Lappalainen and furnished by interior designer Hanni Koroma, has an inverted pitch roof that’s inspired by seagull wings.
The jagged edges of the roof are meant to resemble the surrounding peaks of the Cascades. The exterior HardiePanel vertical siding is painted “dark pewter” by Benjamin Moore.
At the end of a steep driveway, off a road less graveled, await the happy innkeepers: Chris Brown, Sarah Johnson, and Michael and Joshua, two of their three sons.

"Exterior materials include black anodized-aluminum windows, stained western red cedar, and pre-painted metal siding," Parish says. "These materials complement the new modern volume of the house, while also nodding to the existing character of the neighborhood."
Breuer's statement butterfly roof makes an appearance here at the Lauck House. Large glazing along the southern facade welcomes winter sun. Extended overhangs provide shade in the summer, while still allowing a visual connection to the grounds.
A charming 900-square-foot guest house sits on the property.
Overhanging roof eaves help protect the home from unwanted solar gain.
Built in 1956 by renowned local builder Vito Fosella, the two-story home embraces the wooded landscape with an exterior clad in teak, mahogany, and stone. The roof is tar and gravel.
"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.
Charred hardwood sourced from the Eco Timber Group clad the exterior. Operable glazing now establishes a seamless indoor-outdoor connection.
Sweeping eaves protect the home from unwanted solar gain.

Facade
A dramatic triangular wooden truss extends the butterfly roof beyond the glass wall of the living room, also shading the stone-paved terrace. A low stone wall expands from the house into the surrounding landscape.
The facade has a valley-shaped roofline, and is clad in standing-seam, 100-percent recycled steel, and tight knot cedar tongue-and-groove siding.

The original house is shaped like an L, with a butterfly roof. The architects first took note of Emery's key material moves, which include the white-framed windows, a brick foundation, and dark hardwood cladding on the exterior.
With a base price of $79,000, this 194-square-foot trailer is a complete tiny house on wheels and offers its owners flexibility of layout, as well as a wide range of optional customizations.

Designed by architect Jeffery Poss, the tea hut is the first of what Kalanzis and her husband, Bill Cope, hope to be several sculptural structures on their property, which comprises a forested grove to the east, a former tree farm on the west, and the main house and hut in the middle.
