Herlach Hartmann Frommenwiler Architects (HHF) have updated this original 1957 Swiss-style house into a modern home with a unique, stand-out feature – a tin roof. The gleaming beacon stands as an ode to modern technology, constructed of wide sheets of copper-titanium-zinc alloy with a flattened ridge and a contemporary living space beneath. The modern apartment is not what you might expect to find in a 50-year-old house, never mind the fact that it’s stashed in the attic. But this does have its advantages – the roof’s unconventional shape allows for interesting interior architectural details, like the angled walls and pillars, while expansive windows create a bright and airy open-concept living space.
