Material Blocking

One of the characteristics of contemporary design is material blocking. Just like colour blocking, material blocking takes masses of the building and makes them one material and colour.

Take this house for example:

Everywhere there is horizontal siding would be one colour, everywhere there is stone would be another, and the stucco would be a third colour. It all adds up to in interesting facade while being cohesive.

It’s almost like building with lego all over again!
