If you are about to build a home, it is important to define the home building material you will use. The material itself will define how much the budget you need from the construction, and sure the design that could be developed from that kind of material. More than that, it is also important to choose the right material for your home building based on the geographical profile of the land site. So, basically this material stuff is not that easy.
When you have a site located on such location with extreme weather for example, you need material which can adapt with the temperature. Even though you really can give it all to your contractor and let them do their job with this, there’s nothing wrong with playing your imagination on it, right? And if you are currently looking for something different, maybe you can consider this idea about unique home building material using combination of glass. Concrete and metal from a residence located in Missouri, USA.
Titled as Heavy Metal Residence, this house is completed by Kansas City-based architect studio, Hufft Projects. The 7,000 sq residence showing unique combination of usage of three different materials on the building structure; glass, metal slates and concrete. Inspired by contemporary concept, the building has typical rectangular shape on its form factor. The concrete is used on the wall and combined with thin metal board with holes on it as an aesthetical element.
The combination between concrete and metal alone is already a bright idea for home design. Both of them give strong and tough impression to the building. The addition of transparent glass walls on some areas is giving the building futuristic look which completes it all. More than that, the transparent glass is also connecting the indoor with outdoor area; create visual connection between those two. So, do you think those home building material inspirations are helping?
