Mid-sized contemporary gray three-story mixed siding flat roof idea in Seattle

Green Cubed Modern Exterior Photos

Contemporary Exterior, Seattle

This project was built on spec and pushed for affordable sustainability without compromising a clean modern design that balanced visual warmth with performance and economic efficiency. The project achieved far more points than was required to gain a 5-star builtgreen rating. The design was based around a small footprint that was located over the existing cottage and utilized structural insulated panels, radiant floor heat, low/no VOC finishes and many other green building strategies.

    This is an open rain-screen utilizing air (it's just open gaps between the panels) instead of flashing. Extra care is required and the appropriate materials and installation applied at the drainage plane (house wrap, penetration flashings, etc.).

    Wow, thanks Lee. Is there any way to see any details on the installation? I’ve trawled the Hardie web site and they kick you to the reveal system for this look. I’m assuming there has got to be something behind the gaps that’s “hard”, (ie, I’m assuming you don’t see the WRB if you look in the gaps??)
