“The Hidden Path Residence in Shelter Island, N.Y. incorporates a mix of copper and western red cedar in its roofing and wall cladding systems. The flat-seam copper roof is made from a series of 18-by-24 inch copper sheet panels in a running bond pattern. All of the home’s built-in gutters, downspouts and roof-edge fascia trim elements are also made of copper.
The contrast between the home’s exterior materials is designed to express its volumetric organization. As it ages, the copper will develop a patina that will contrast the surrounding environment.”
