291 Exterior Concrete Siding Material Flat Roofline 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 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.
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.
"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.
"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.
The smaller of the two existing buildings, this renovated structure houses two bedrooms. A glass overhang was installed above the passageway linking the historic structure with the concrete addition.
“The ‘new box’ on the site is made to be relatively inconspicuous,” say the architects of the boxy, concrete extension. “In the presence of the time-honored beauty of 70-year-old houses and the supreme natural landscape, any fresh elements seem unnecessary and charmless.”
Separated by an elevation difference of approximately 13 feet, the renovated structures are oriented towards views of the East China Sea.
The surrounding grounds were relandscaped to create even more privacy and garden views from the house and around the tennis court and pools.
Essentially, the entrance was kept in the same spot, with the chimney to the far right side.
The boxy, contemporary new facade was completely restructured.
The entrance to the home follows a compressed stair sequence that travels under the bridge. On one side, the path is bounded by the close growth of the oak grove, and the other opens to a sunny courtyard.
The home’s program is split between two structures, each completing one arm of the L shape, and connected by an enclosed, second-story bridge.
