I love the title of this house, “Heavy Metal” for reasons that are easily recognizable. The amount of steel used in the modern home is quite impressive. It is pretty amazing to me that before each panel was perforated, the pattern was considered with regards to solar gain. The bathroom is quite expansive with what looks to be a steel floor and a massive boulder right in the middle, you have to have a place to to sit.

“Glass, steel, and concrete come together on this residence in a sophisticated composition of modern proportions and elegant detail. Aptly named Heavy Metal, this steel clad private residence sits on 8 acres of heavily wooded terrain. The skin is a layered facade of glass and perforated steel with large glass openings placed in strategic locations to capture the beautiful and rugged landscape. Where required, these openings are shielded by approximately two hundred unique 4’ x 10’ cold rolled steel panels. Each panel has a custom perforation pattern which is determined by a complex process that takes into account solar gain, varying levels of transparency and privacy needs.”
