Feldman Architecture designed a modern house in Portola Valley, California, that features a dark wood exterior.
The house, designed for a young family with two children, has an H-shape plan and is surrounded by large oaks and redwoods
The dark exterior of the home showcases cedar siding that has been stained-black to create the desired look.
The home also features lighter wood sunscreens that have been integrated into its rear facade. These sunscreens not only contrast with the cedar siding, but also filter the sunlight into defined strips against the dark facade.
Inside the home, there's a bright interior with a wood floor and ceiling, and white walls.
