Ra+D House

Elkins, AR


Located on 100 acres of Ozark wilderness, the project is sited along the edge of a mountain creek which empties into the White river. The house acts as a screen through which the user must filter to encounter this stunning view. The clients requested a low maintenance exterior and the solution was a combination of board-formed concrete, corrugated cor-ten steel, and Cypress ship-lapped siding. The cladding idea also integrates the color scheme of the natural terrain and flora and allows the building to age gracefully, the wood eventually turning from tan to silver.
