I like the downspout - I like the drain spout of the Meadow Creek House and would like to know the width of the spout.

If I remember correctly, we used a pair of 4" diameter downspouts. We like using pairs - if one get blocked the other still works.

I like the colors in the elements in this house -- the grey of the end block, particularly the rust, the charcoal of the overhang and partial wall at front. Can you tell me what the materials are? Many thanks.

Thanks for the reply. We are working with similar but a little lighter colors and materials on a house that is underway in the SF bay area. John Maniscalco is the architect, and our good friend Ken Philp of Seattle is doing the landscape design. Will post pictures when we have something to show (probably 10 months or so from now).

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to High Design for the Downspout
The Pacific Northwest is a region that is known for its wetness, if in reality it's only half the year that it deserves that reputation. Nevertheless architects in the region are certainly creative in dealing with water, as the projects of Seattle's Eggleston Farkas attest. This house overlooking Puget Sound features this distinctive "paired spout," which is repeated around the perimeter. At the main entry the spouts actually feed a reflecting pool traversed by a bridge.

Downspout! One of the basic functions of shelter is to keep water out. Just about every aspect of the exterior envelope addresses this concern, be it walls, windows, doors or roofs. The last is the most obvious point of contact for rain and for dealing with it, necessitating that rainwater be directed somewhere away from the building. Therein lies the need for downspouts. With flat roofs, most often downspouts are located within walls inside the building, hidden from sight and thought. On the other hand, pitched roofs, and in some cases flat roofs, exhibit the channeling of water to the surrounding landscape through gutters and downspouts. But standard solutions don't always yield the nicest of appearances. What follows are other ways of bringing water from roof to landscape, through downspouts, scuppers, and even down rain chains. Maybe it's time to incorporate an idea on your own house before it rains again?
