Whts the material used for exterior wall cladding? - is it a wooden or aluminium composite panel?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Take away all the curves going this way and that, and this house in Northern California might just fit in with other modern houses on Houzz. But why do so? They give this hillside residence so much character. It seems as if the various volumes and curves work in perfect balance, the convex curve on the left rooting the house into the site as the concave curve on the right leans over the slope.

The richness of the color merging with nature, The uniqueness of the shape and the volume the house has taken. Also going with the contour lines of the location. It seems the design is saying Less is more from the outside and Delicious pure cream from the inside and being transparent.Maybe the levels inside would be a challenge of the occupier unless there is an easy way of moving between the levels.
