Set for completion this October, NORD Architecture’s Shingle House will be part of the Living Architecture vacation houses, a project aimed to enhance the public’s appreciation of architecture. For their project, the young practice responded to the site’s strong winds and incorporated a modern take on the typical shingle homes that are scattered across the area.
More images and more about the home after the break.
On the exterior, the house is finished with tarred black shingles. The simplicity of the treatment creates a sense of monumentality as the volume appears more like a stoic object then a typical home.
However, for the interior, the dominance of black is only used to accent certain areas; and, the combination of concrete and wood draws attention to the interior’s rich geometry.
