Architecture firm KONKRET Studio, has designed a modern home in Ullo, Hungary, that has a simple exterior of black corrugated fiber-cement siding.
Located between a walnut grove and an open hay field, the home, designed for a family of four, was designed to be durable and open to the garden.
The entire exterior of the home has been covered in a corrugated fiber-cement siding, which was chosen for its black color, simplicity, and the fact that it could be used as a roofing material in addition to being the siding.
The corrugated siding also added a textural element to the home and acts as a waterproof surface.
The Wood Lined Alcoves
The wood-lined alcoves are the only two areas where the corrugated siding isn’t used on the exterior. Instead, larch wood siding has been used for the entry alcove as well as the covered outdoor area to create warm and inviting spaces that are open to the garden.
The interior of the home features simple white walls and a white ceiling, concrete floors, and a color palette of gray with yellow accents. In the kitchen, there are wood cabinets and an island, while off the open plan dining area is a playroom, and hidden behind flush doors on the white wall are the bedrooms and bathrooms.
