Residential Design Inspiration: Modern Concrete Homes

By on November 9, 2017. Posted in .

Last weekend I was talking through design inspirations with a client and the idea of a concrete house came up. As we usually do in a Pre-Design meeting we were looking through images, discussing likes and dislikes, and the conversation kept going back to concrete. I think when you first imagine a concrete house you might think “bunker” and cold and hard… but we’ve pulled together some images of houses below that I believe are quite elegant and definitely interesting. The East House by Peter Rose + Partners is one I love – and not only for this concrete category. The use of wood detailing at the entry and visible through each opening in the concrete seems to invite you into its cozy interior.

I’m sure there are many folks who might not love the idea of a concrete house… but I’m happy that there are those that do!
