Rebecca Gross added this to The Layered Effect: The Beauty of Shingle Cladding30 July 2017

The rugged California coastline inspired the materials palette of copper, slate, warm woods and timber shingles used here. The low-key, natural palette ensures the home blends into the local environment and landscape.

CHASE CHIMNEYSChase chimneys are prefabricated metal chimneys running up inside a wood-framed, metal-sided, or masonry column or cover (the chase). A chase chimney offers the efficiency of a prefabricated chimney teamed with the structural aesthetic of a masonry chimney. If you live in a home with an existing masonry chimney, you can, in many cases, insert a metal chimney flue to gain the benefits of a prefabricated chimney without sacrificing the style of your house.7. Material considerationThe chimneys pictured in the next two images are subtle in form and colour but still hold an important place in the architecture of each house. In the first, the chimney is notable for the materials used in its construction; in the second image, the chimneys add a sense of symmetry and balance to the low-profile building. This residence features a copper-clad chimney connecting two gabled wings that shelter an internal courtyard. Inspired by the rugged coastline near which the house is built, architect Nick Noyes chose copper – as well as shingles and slate – to construct the home so that it would blend in with the local environment.
