About

Novo Ferrum comes from the Latin meaning renewed iron, which is the embodiment of this earthy residence's experience. The natural elements of wood and stone create balance against the strong panels of iron, which are clad to the exterior of this modern single-family home renovation. As a transition metal and a critical element in nourishing life on Earth, overtime iron reacts when exposed to oxygen and moisture in the air. This reaction produces a transformation that renews the iron into iron oxide and changes its color from silver-gray to brilliant shades of brown, orange, and red. The use of iron in the Novo Ferrum residence creates a forever changing exterior design and color palette that engages one’s senses from season to season and year to year. The exterior evolves and becomes refreshed naturally overtime and merge the residence into its surroundings with color and texture that only nature itself can create.
