Concrete, pounding Lehn, stone basket walls
Modern House of exterior
From time to time I may focus on houses and their materials. Hereby, I wanted to tell about it – concrete, stone, wood, metal and even rammed earth.
The next examples look at and examine whether they are suitable also for your projects.
House in Chelsea, Quebec
In Quebec, this House is built with industrial concrete blocks
In Quebec, this House is built with industrial concrete blocks. Instead of a circumferential edge or something else but the Kariouk associates have assigned the blocks in a pinwheel pattern. It can be woven look like the box-shaped exterior. In close-up, the surface looks uneven, unglatt. So, from certain angles, the exterior has interesting shadow patterns. This House also shows how the cheapest, trivial material can present good results when it is edited cleverly.
This neckline that frames a view of the trees, accentuated on the concrete on-site
This House in Texas, designed by cornerstone of architects, was made primarily of limestone and concrete. Both seem to be quite flat and monolithic, but the concrete has some horizontal cutouts left and under the hole in the wall.
This neckline that frames a view of the trees, accentuated on the concrete on the ground. Concrete is poured into shape bodies. Here also horizontal wooden beams were used, their “spirit” is visible.
Concrete is poured into shape bodies
Concrete was used for the chimney and free-standing walls. Therefore, the perimeter walls are made of limestone.
This is an aesthetic choice, which increases the cost. Of course, so the walls are fine and have a milder color.

Limestone is used indoors, stressing the monolithic walls (insulation has been installed between internal and external facades).

At this distance, some things are clear: the mortar goes well with the lime stone and the stone structure truly represents how he was made. You can see that to cut the stone with big turntables.

Buddhist House in Utah
This Buddhist House in Utah is so weird that its walls of the Earth seem to grow as if it is below made by the rock. Walls that arises from stone basket – large stones are of screen baskets.

Used stones and the material of the baskets make the walls look rusted. Of course they can be not the primary structure, in this House, the stone basket walls as a cladding of solid, traditional walls are used.

Model house in Arizona
This House is a distribution center that serves as a model for unique modern desert development in Sedona, Arizona. The dark steel is striking in the desert landscape, the rammed earth but rooted the House.

Here we have a combination of stained concrete floors, wooden ceiling and rammed mud walls.
Rammed earth is one of the oldest constructions in the world, with the modernization she slipped, but comes back to life in the environmentally-friendly buildings. Of course, the desert is the perfect source for this material, since it has the property to radiate the heat accumulated during the day at night.
This garage in Portola Valley, California, really accentuates the horizontal layering
Rammed earth and concrete are similar in many aspects, they are almost as hard – compaction and curing. Both are built from the bottom upwards and therefore have a stratification that is more or less to see. This garage in Portola Valley, California, really accentuates the horizontal layering.
a great idea
Loft in ChicagoThe next two examples of interiors. For a loft in Chicago, Sudio IE has designed a few wooden walls with wavy pattern, arising from the joint connection of the wood strips.
The next two examples of interiors
In close-up, the construction of the alternating strips of oak is more understandable, but still he is complicated enough that we more fully understand how it was done. To a wall or door would be expensive, but a do-it yourselfers wood master would look forward to such a project.
House in New York
The modern fireplace in this House, designed by Bates Masi architects, features, its vertical elements accentuate the walls and roof

Instead of wood, which is a cover made of Bronze bars, the digital cut and painted on the ground are.

The strips are L shaped, short leg overlapping the adjacent bar. With this cover, the fireplace is a true minimalist artwork.
