Dihedral House by Arch11

Check out this beautiful house in Colorado. It's the perfect mix of West Coast Modern and Industrial Architecture.. a great blend of of wood and concrete, without either element being overbearing. The sloped roof adds a ton of interest and architectural details, and having a corner lot means the widest portion of the house can be featured (in Vancouver, the typical lot of 33x120, so if you were lucky enough to be on a corner lot you can feature the longest side of house). 

From the Contemporist: 

This modern urban house is anchored on a downtown corner site. An all glass living room Site-cast, board-formed concrete walls moor the building to its site, while providing thermal mass to control temperature swings. The house is organized around crossing dihedral lines, one phenomenal, one tectonic that shear the interior volumes of the house. The building was delivered as a fast-track, design-build with Hammerwell inc.

I really like this house. I'm not sure that it is "industrial" except for that cool bike room. The rest is sleek, refined and so well made. I like the connection to the ourdoors. That fits the Colorado lifestyle so well. Kudos to Arch11 and their efforts.
