Thank you for the information. It has a nice clean look. It must be very durable also in inclement weather.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The clients moved from New Mexico, and "their central request was to bring as much natural light into the house as possible to re-create the light of the Southwest," Demerly says. They eschewed an all-glass facade in favor of carefully placed windows. This decision arises partly because the property is located in a historic neighborhood, which also drove Demerly to create a contemporary gable "pared down to its essence," he says.Demerly argues, fairly convincingly, that "there is a certain symbiosis between the new and the old — neighborhoods thrive on variety, and this project is stronger because of its historical context, and we feel that the historical context is also improved by our contemporary insertion."
Perhaps the big idea is to respect a part of the context while striving to achieve something altogether modern. While the form here is of a traditional gabled roof house as a child would draw it, the overall effect is one of modernity.
