* Residential Architecture: Heavy Metal House by Hufft Projects

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 24 May 2012

Residential Architecture: Heavy Metal House by Hufft Projects: “..Heavy Metal draws its name, and it’s straight forward industrial aesthetic, from the custom perforated steel panels which form the envelope of the residence. Numbering more than 200 in all, each panel has a unique set of perforations based on a simple set of programmatic responses to interior and exterior conditions, which are scrutinized to determine where privacy (opacity) is most critical and where openness (transparency) is desired..Heavy Metal’s plan is a variation on a traditional courtyard parti, with a large outdoor space bound on two sides by the steel and glass façade. The central living/dining area acts as the heart of the residence, with its increased ceiling height and warm walnut ceilings, the space is inviting and comfortable..”  Extensive glazing, natural light, privacy, attractive interiors..
