        Last year’s snowy winter in New England is an example of exactly why the midcentury modern homes in the region have sloped roofs for managing the snow. Pitched roofs naturally accumulate less snow, requiring smaller structural members, and they can also be designed for the snow to slide off. Water can also be drained from the roof. Sloped rooflines become another element in the designer’s toolbox. On the one hand, they can provide a dramatic accent to your house, reaching to the sky, and on the other hand, sloped roofs can be used to beautifully align with the natural topography of the site, as seen in this midcentury modern home designed by James Cowan.See more of this home in Washington

        The L-shaped house mixes wood, glass and cement. A large wall of glass lets light flood into the living room and connects the space to the outdoors, but a wood-screened courtyard in front prevents it from feeling exposed to the street. The home was built in 1957 for the Devney family. It remained in its original condition until it was sold to its second owner in 2006.The Faulkners have met both James Cowan's daughter and one of the Devney sons. "Speaking with them has added to the house and our desire to preserve it as a historical piece of architecture," says Scott.
