The design blog Dezeen recently noticed “a lot of black cropping up in architecture and design,” backing the claim up with a photo archive of modern black houses they’ve featured.
Our region would appear to be keeping up or even leading the trend... Among the black houses featured by Dezeen is the award-winning writer’s studio designed Wendy Evans Joseph (of Cooper Joseph) which was built locally by James Romanchuk & Sons. Photos of it were published in Architectural Record.
Dezeen might want to add to the list the studio under construction by artists Tony Thompson and Margaret Saliske behind their Federal house on East Allen Street. Pictured above, the design with Greenport-based AF Architecture in collaboration with the artists.
Yet another example in the area (from about 6-7 years ago) is this house designed by Leven Betts.
