Humble ( building ) materials

Humble materials aren’t costly or luxurious, but using them in residential design doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice interest or refinement. Many architects find inspiration in the humble beauty of simple structures dressed in plain materials that are used honestly. These materials don’t draw attention to themselves or pretend to be something they’re not. They’re chosen to modestly serve their purpose.

In this video I review:
– Plywood
– Natural (unfinished wood)
– Live edge wood
– Exposed framing (clear and painted)
– Reclaimed wood
– Gypsum board (painted and unpainted)
– Commercial steel components
– Concrete block (CMU)
– Concrete sheet goods (Hardipanel, Cembonit)
