While metal sheet-enclosed housing might sound like something from the apocalypse, David Weiner Architects manages to make the Berkshire Pond House into something more than that. Indeed, metal sheeting makes up the majority of the outer layer of the house, but the structure, interior and placement of the windows turn the home into a chic place of residence.

David Weiner Architects has the metal sheets covering everything from the side walls of what appears to be the garage at the Berkshire Pond House, over the roof of the house and right down to the other side of the backyard. Windows are placed on both the front and back of the house to allow for a view of the Berkshire Hills, and also make sure the people living here did not feel claustrophobic at any point.
