Recap: Rugged materials claim the exterior of this gut renovation, like the rustic lumber siding salvaged from Montana corrals. The palette gets increasingly refined as you migrate inside; see the living room’s colorful Italian 1950s multi-arm pendant and Charlotte Perriand-inspired cabinetry, as well as the newly expanded windows that frame painterly American West views.
Recap: A family home consists of a barnlike structure with a crisp, gabled roof in pre-patinated zinc. The abode is sited along the east-west axis of its acreage, pulling in views of the coast and rolling hills through spectacular full-height glazing. Inside, its pine trusses are exposed—another nod to rural vernaculars.
Recap: An 1880s Victorian—restored to include charred rafters and studs from a long-ago fire—is joined by a simpatico contemporary addition affectionately dubbed the Music Box and designed to accommodate recitals as well as guests. Fittingly, the addition's aluminum facade is custom perforated in a pattern derived from Chopin’s Nocturne in E-flat major, Op. 9, No. 2, the client’s favorite piano composition.
Recap: A compound near Quebec’s Vermont border is reminiscent of a farm, with a central courtyard and four outbuildings. The interior application of materials traditionally used as cladding, like corrugated sheet metal (here painted yellow-gold), subtly recalls being alfresco. “You get the same effect as camping, feeling a part of nature yet protected,” explains Tux partner Laurent Guez.
