Concrete is a structural material used in construction that has now become popular to leave exposed. You can build a concrete house with exposed concrete exteriors or use concrete as an interior finish material.

Concrete Home Exterior Design
At our architecture firm, Fontan Architecture we have done multiple concrete houses. We first used concrete in the flood zone in New York after Sandy. Concrete is a durable material that can withstand abuse and last a long time. Concrete also can look pretty cool. You can build a house out of concrete and cover the material but if you can also leave it all exposed.
Concrete Home Interiors
Concrete is becoming more popular for interior finishes. There are lots of ways to use concrete on an interior.
As an architect, I study design and construction, but these are complicated and quite involved issues. In this article, we reviewed some tips and ideas for concrete home design but there are many others to consider. Every project is unique and must be assessed on its own unique characteristics. This post does not assume to cover every possible issue or condition, but provide a general overview of the topic.
