This stone and wooden house dubbed as the Maddock House looks tremendously rustic from outside. This house uses stone as the platform and it’s built in Calgary, Canada. The house was designed by Canadian architect Marc Boutin. The imposing wood and stone structure is keeping safe the family which consists of four members.
The platform that uses stone is a very well chosen materials as this house has extensive and exquisite views of the Rocky Mountains and the city centre at the west. This house has a great social aspects as the spaces are carefully built with vista as far as the eyes can see from inside. At the living room and the kitchen you can take a splendid view of the south west oriented courtyard. This house has two outdoor fireplaces, where one can be found at the courtyard and the other will be at the upper level terrace. So here is more coverage on the materials used at this house.
“The design utilizes stone cladding on the main level as an important conceptual gesture that integrates the landscape into the interior spaces of the house. This is done through the extension of landscape walls. The stone walls define contained exterior spaces that provide the house with varying levels of privacy and amenity. The top two floors are clad in stained wood, feature glazing and sun shading to support passive solar gain, and natural lighting and ventilation.” This is just the kind of house we like and this is our way of what a house should be – integrating with nature.
