black houses

Whether they’re mountain cabins or lakeside homes, minimalist structures or contemporary barn designs, black modern houses have a special character. Some stand out from a distance and demand attention. Others look at home in natural landscapes where they blend into woodlands or rocky hills. These houses with black trim exterior finishes range from more traditional to monolithic and modern. Simple designs that provide a modern twist on the stereotypical house silhouette. Asymmetric volumes with geometric shapes. Or something in between.

Wooden cladding or weathered metal panels combine with stone, glass, or concrete. Exterior walls boast surface treatments meant to withstand all kinds of weather conditions with minimal maintenance. At the same time, the black modern houses also defy the passage of time. Flat tops or gabled roofs enhance these dark volumes and often define their personality, while fenestration – whether conventional or atypical – connects interiors to their surroundings.

Many houses with black trim exterior surfaces feature contrasting interiors. Rooms flooded with natural light and boasting white walls, double-height ceilings, or large windows that offer sweeping views of mountain, lake, or coastal landscapes. Beyond the dark cladding which references the concept of shelter and private space, bright living spaces create an airy, lofty feel. Wooden floors and rustic details give some of these interiors a distinctive warmth, while minimal furniture with clean lines connect the living spaces to an ultra-modern exterior. Regardless of their appearance, all of these black modern houses are someone’s ideal place to be. The ultimate cabin to escape to for a ski weekend. A perfect lakeside house for the summer. The cozy dwelling that can only be described as “home.”
