What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Modern Gable-Style Homes
This view reveals how the "+" shaped house is rendered in two ways that bring the gable vernacular into the contemporary. This white side, described in the previous photo, is contrasted with the dark metal panels that wrap the walls and roof, and the regular grid of windows that gives a strong logic to the other volume.More: Updates of Classic Roof Styles
"The plan is a simple cross. Historical farmhouses had simple overhangs to get rainwater out and away from the barn. We played off of that idea by doing a zero overhang on the back side and doing overhangs of up to 8 feet on the white side," says Costello. The biggest challenge for Costello and his design firm: The city of Wayzata's government staff objected to the farmhouse's contemporary spirit. Costello says, "Wayzata is a quaint suburb of Minneapolis, and they have a provision in their code that basically says that they can deny building permits based on architectural style and design. Thankfully, my client believed strongly in what we were creating and fought the city for a year to build what he wanted. He triumphed in the end."
It has the substantial presence and shape of a barn, or two deconstructed barns, or a farmhouse and a barn intersecting with one another ... I can't make up my mind, which is why it's so interesting.
