A charred cypress clad North Carolina home that cascades down a hill into a lake has been created by Fuller Overby in North Carolina. The project, called Nebo House, is 255 square meters and is located on Lake James. Aiming to reduce its volume, the house is composed of eight pavilion-like volumes, each with a different program, that descend from the retaining wall and are grouped around a central courtyard that serves as an outdoor room. Outside, the individual forms are draped in dark charred cypress and a standing seam patinated zinc roof that reflects the browns, greens and grays of the forest and lake and is meant to stand the test of time.
