Beechwood Building has been tearing it up the past week – literally. The roof is off the house and it’s already a big improvement to the dull & dirty little ranch that was there. The new roof will be nearly flat and so we’re able to see some of the shape of the house. So far so good with regards to the translation from paper to living structure. The flatter roof gives such strong geometric lines that brings a nice design focus to the linear window elements as well as a more defined focus to the treeline behind the house.
