Valspar Coats Residential Home in Takoma Park Using Artist Richard Diebenkorn as Inspiration

In the woodsy neighborhood of Takoma Park, Maryland stands Alan Kanner's recently remodeled home. The builder teamed up with McIntruff Architects and Valspar to create a distinct and eye-catching exterior.

“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.
