Silbonit siding? - I have a client who is considering a cement board siding and understand that Silbonit siding was used on this project. If this is true can I ask when it was installed?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Regional Modern: Boston
Last, this house brings to the fore the history found in the Boston area: the wood-clad exterior that informs many of the previous designs. Here, an addition opts for contrast, with metal instead of wood and large expanses of glass. More regional modern architecture:Chicago | Austin | NYC | New York Metro | Seattle | OregonNorthern California | San Francisco | L.A. | Coastal L.A.
Josh McCullar | SMBW added this to Great Compositions: The L-Shaped House Plan
Two traditional wood shingle clad domestic forms are connected by a modern glassy L-shaped loggia defining a stepped lawn and patio. The use of contrast as the linking element here with a lighter color extends the light of the sky to the ground and allows the "two houses" to remain deferentially scaled to the outdoor room.Now imagine for a moment if a linear reflecting pool was added on axis at the center of the lower lawn merging the earth and sky at the connecting loggia.
