Project Description

This modern house needed a warm and earthy wall to offset the stark white walls and modern concrete tiles, so the architect decided to clad the two front columns in ipe hardwood. The color of ipe is ideal to give warmth, which thanks to the large impact windows can be seen from inside as well as out. For the columns we were able to use ipe shorts, but for the top wall that connects the two columns we used 16 foot boards.  The installation was done with hidden fasteners in keeping with the architectural plans and the modern look of the house.
