Mohle Drive Residence modern-porch

Mohle Drive Residence

The western facing rainscreen shields the building from the effects of the direct western sun. We used Ipe in this project.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steel-to-steel connections are of a different character than those of steel to wood, but their appeal is still evident. In this house, steel I-beams land upon cross-shape columns (most likely made up of multiple steel shapes welded together). The simple way that the steel disappears into the concrete slab is the antithesis of the beam-column connection above; it's a nonconnection, or at least one hidden from sight.

Porch post detail that looks like two two angle iron were welded to form an X section is awesome. Very clean, modern and unusual.
