Facade of the house - modern vs traditional

My architect is proposing the use of brick, stone and stucco for the house that has a very modern look. Would you go this route or rather use modern exterior finishes?

I agree with architect, but the house should please YOU not me or the architect. If you do not like the look, copy some photos of Houzz exterior modern and show professional: http://www.houzz.com/exterior-modern

The brick is way too heavy a look I think. The rendering looks like a new fire station. Either very light stone, as in this pix, or light stucco.

@j222b , yes a house should be my style and taste , not a Architects , I make sure we have many sittings with my clients before we work something for them , and we never Impose our taste on them , so that's a Win-Win situation , never let the Architect call the shots .

HI -- If your Architect has lots of houses that they have done before - get a list of them that you can go see and work it out with the architect on which materials and finishes you prefer. It sounds like you need some visuals to help you choose what's right for you and your home .

Not a big fan of the red bricks, makes it look a fire station imho.
