35 Exterior Metal Siding Material Stone Siding Material Design Photos And Ideas

Working with a sumptuous material palette, Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects designed a sprawling new residence in Palo Alto for Mark and Laura Pine. The teak wood and handmade Danish bricks that define the exterior are used inside as well; distressed stainless steel panels by Chris French Metal sheathe one side of the upper volume. Blasen Landscape Architecture chose Peruvian feather grass to flank the entrance walkway.
The client, Beau Neilson (daughter of Australian art patrons Judith & Kerr Neilson) and her husband, Jeffrey Simpson were looking for an elegant and comfortable residence and their brief displayed a clear understanding of lifestyle, architecture, and design.
Structural engineering firm Robert Silman Associates was key in helping the couple execute their design, particularly the cantilevered standing-seam aluminum roof.
The house’s concrete and metal are warmed by mahogany-framed windows from Duratherm.
The series of spaces are connected through terraces, gardens, and pools.   Heavy stone walls balance with the redwood form work and delicate canvas roof.
Set on six acres in Sullivan County, New York, Jason Shannon and Paola Yañez’s weekend getaway is a study in minimalism. The couple chose to work within a small footprint for both aesthetic and financial reasons. On the patio, the Maya modular seating is from Room & Board and the Ball light is by Smart and Green. Jason and Paola designed the fire pit, which they also use as a grill.
Atelier Andy Carson has created a robust family home that actively explores the relationship between building and landscape.
The home was designed to cantilever out towards specific framed views of its spectacular surroundings.
The funnel-like protrusion cantilevers over the hillside and is supported by angled pillars.
The house is positioned on top of a hill on a 150-acre site where a ridge connects the Illawarra escarpment to the sea. From its elevated position, it looks down towards Werri Beach and Geering Bay.
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.

Combining a prefab steel super-structure with concrete walls and insulated metal panels, Anthrazit House in Santa Barbara was designed by architects Pamela and Hector Magnus and built in collaboration with EcoSteel.
Cor-Ten steel from a ship building yard clads the new structure, which connects via a glass “bridge” to a rebuilt stone farmhouse containing the bedrooms.
