April Feature Project : Carbon
avril 19, 2017
We included this home in our 2016 highlights blog but think it is so special that it deserves a feature project exclusive.
This new build has undeniable stopping power. Big, bold and arresting in a design that is clearly both traditional and contemporary. This amalgam of old and new is the height of residential fashion. This is because people continue to appreciate the enduring appeal of traditional home design yet want to take advantage of modern elements as well.
The latest building materials and methods, in the hands of creative designers and architects, have met this demand in dramatic style. This particular home is also an excellent example of the current trend towards the mixing of materials, high contrast colours and the use of black or dark grey.
The black roofing, window frames and doors merge seamlessly with the Fusion Stone Great Lakes Carbon veneer. The Fusion Stone, in turn, supports the traditional aspects of this home and contrasts boldly with the stained siding, producing a balanced yet powerful effect of innovative modernity.
Note also how the application of Fusion Stone has not been restricted to just the front. It also plays a major role as a significant part of the right-side wall including an interesting terraced feature toward the back.
We are convinced that in its own time this design and others like it will become the new traditional that future generations will respect and preserve in generations to come.
Don’t forget, Fusion Stone is available in two distinct profiles and comes in multiple colours. It is maintenance-free, guaranteed for life, and available at over 1,500 building supply retailers across Canada.
Watch for our next feature project in May.
