What Houzz contributors are saying:
MaterialsWood has been the traditional material of choice for shingles. Wood shingles are made from durable woods such as western red cedar, which is resistant to harsh weather and other environmental factors. But shingles can also be made from stone, asphalt, slate, zinc and other materials.
The Whistler Residence is covered partly in dark shingles, which accentuate the concrete that breaks up the form and the wood that can be seen through the large opening.
