This compact North Carolina home’s rhythmic facade and daylight-drenched interiors create a connection to nature. A tall gray wall, made of acid-washed zinc metal, marks the entryway and visually grounds the roof planes. It also separates the living and bedroom volumes.
For the exterior of this oceanfront home in Australia, architect John Wardle chose zinc to complement the trees that surround the house on its northern fringes.
