“I wanted to do something completely different for the exterior,” said Kanner. “We decided to go with a coated metal material due to the unique aesthetic and versatility it provides.”
The exterior of Kanner’s home almost looks like a black pair of corduroy pants, but with the stripes going both ways and is one of the more unique features of the home. The duality of the metal panels provides a magnetic visual for the modern home, and is further emphasized by the vibrant pigments of Valspar’s Fluropon coating in Black. Although a defining component of the exterior aesthetic, the black metal was also selected to function as a backdrop for a palette of accent colors selected by McInturff to reflect the paintings in artist Richard Diebenkorn’s Ocean Park Series.
