A small modern architectural weekend home in Noyack, New York features black siding and four high white framed windows on the front exterior. (above)
Such a cool small box shaped modern house. Only about 1300 square feet but built on big ideas. Designed by the architecture firm Bates Masi Architects, this house was commissioned by an actor who needed a weekend get away outside of New York.
I am intrigued by all of the interesting architectural choices made in this vacation home. Most intriguing is the black Skatelite siding on the exterior. Skatelite is a material used in skateboard parks…a material used to cover ground surfaces that helps skaters go faster on their boards! In the last photo…you can see a detail shot of this siding.
Also love the deck boards used as hardwood flooring. I like the fact that the floors have been laid in an interesting shape to create a path of sorts through the house.
Lastly, I think all of the knotty wood wall and ceiling paneling looks fantastic. The lines of the boards and the knots in the wood all work well together to give this home a sense of modern sleekness combined with country warmth.
A bridge on the second level overlooks the common spaces below and links the master bedroom with the upstairs bath (above)
An interior barn door is used for the upstairs bathroom…a great space saving use of a sliding door in a smaller space. (above)
Laser cut Skatelite, the skateboard park ground cover, is used as the home’s functional and decorative siding. (above)
Hope you enjoyed this little modern house as much as I did. What do you think?
