From the architect. The Copper House is located in the Hudson Valley on a wooded, six-acre site two hours north of New York City. Clad almost entirely in corrugated copper siding and a mixture of flat-seam and standing seam copper roofing, the skin will age and develop a patina that reflects time through material changes. The three-bedroom house features distinctive, sculpted south-facing skylights that allow light into various public and private spaces.

The ground floor contains two bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, and a home office. An eight-foot tall, 30-foot-long, open bookshelf system runs the length of the ground floor creating a sense of delineation between rooms, while retaining visual connections across the various spaces. The second floor contains a master bedroom, playroom, and attic space, with windows overlooking the sculpted copper skylights.

Perhaps different copper panels could have been used than the corrugated ones to make exterior more attractive. A combination of shiny raw copper panels, pre-patinated green copper panels and more glazing would enhance the facade. A mix of copper and natural stone outside and inside would give it more character as well.

Superbe architecture!

I absolutely love the design and choice of materials. It does take a certain individual to want a house like this, but I guess I am one of those people.

If I had paid to have this designed and built, then drove home to this image every evening I would cry.... but then again it does have sky lights.

If the owner satisfied by this house - why not... In generally, it is something new in kinds of houses, not so beauty but different.

I note that the word "beautiful" would never be used to describe this house.

Sorry for the double comment, it looked like my first comment wasn't posted for some reason but now it's there. Not trying to beat a dead horse.

Simple. Unique. Affordable. More architecture like this is needed for the masses (or suburbs).
