The classic butterfly roof - it's even more dramatic at night.
This new roof was added to an existing Eichler home.
Here is a closer look at the home shown above.
This is an interior shot of the Eichler home. The Butterfly Roof is dramatic inside and outside.
Here's another image showing the slanted roof from the outside..
...and from the inside.
The 1950s Butterfly Roof is on the right side of this house.
You can see how the new addition (left) took its cues from the 1950s Butterfly Roof and its windows (right).
The second story is part of the addition, again, it was inspired by the 1950s Butterfly Roof.
The inside of the Butterfly Roof on the RainShine House. This one was made from 100% recycled-content steel from local sources; this material was also chosen because it is easily recycled and is mold, mildew, and termite resistant.
The two wings of this Butterfly Roof guide rainwater down to the center, where it travels through a spout to a rainharvest system in the basement.
This house has half a Butterfly Roof - the stylistic slant and windows have caught on and remained popular for the bulk of the last century.
Thanks to Mark English for pointing out the Jackson Family Retreat to me in the comments section!
Here it is from the other side.
