Contemporary House 2 Exteriors
A long single slope roof punctuated by a vertical chimney plus a clerestory to light the entry forms the shape of this design. The simple roof means there are less hips, valleys or intersecting walls that can cause future water problems. The roof lends itself well to solar collector applications. Courtyard walls in a contrasting material provide massing relief while at the same time visually extending the size of this small narrow plan.
