This private residence in Park City, Utah, features over 8,000 square feet of GRAPHITE Abodo Vulcan cladding and soffits. The home has breathtaking mountain views surrounding it, situated perfectly on over an acre of land. The exterior features a mixture of materials that work beautifully together. You can see the exterior wood cladding is weathering gracefully – comparing them to the detail shots taken mid-install. Varying widths of the soffit cladding comparatively to the exterior cladding provides a visual contrast to the overall design. This project utilized a field mockup to understand how the wood cladding will weather in the Utah climate.

These natural gifts often include expansive views, generous solar exposure, mature vegetation and topography which can help to enhance a design.
