Deep Gray Slatted Accoya Wood Siding Covers The Exterior Of This Modern House

Architectural studio Young Projects has completed Six Square House, a new home located in Bridgehampton, New York, that’s made up of six 24’x24’ gabled modules.

Key to the design of the home is the use of deep gray, slatted Accoya wood that covers the exterior.

The charred, stained, and sealed accoya wood siding has been installed in a way to enhance the roofscape’s dynamic edges and arcs.

The accoya was chosen for its durability, low-maintenance, and distinctly contemporary appearance.

Each of the gabled modules has been arranged to align roof ridges and create continuity from one module to the next. Each of the module’s roof eaves flows upward and downward, creating a variety of undulating surfaces and unexpected sightlines across the exterior and interior of the home.

A bright white interior contrasts the exterior of the home and creates a feeling of openness, which is also accentuated by the angled ceilings, that can be found in both the living room and kitchen.
