Steeled


I have been watching the construction of this house all summer and it finally seems to be occupied and nearly completed (if anything is ever complete). Designed by architect firm "Setless Studio", it is located along a laneway leading from Dupont St in what was a lot with a sheetmetal workshop behind a tiny house. The Corten steel has oxidized beautifully and combined with the plantings/privacy screen it presents a very warm image to the street and lane.

cool. I love corten. I'm curious to know if it stains other materials nearby?

Kitty: I'll let you know what happens in the next while.

A very interesting look. Simple and functional in design, yet the material makes it so different.

Therre are a few corten steel houses about and I am quite intrigued by the warm look (unusual in steel).
