I am building a 3,450 sq ft home and need a modern design for the facade. Something that will make it stand out as a leader in the city as opposed to a follower and increase curb appeal. No need for exact dimensions or fancy renderings; I am just looking for good design and material ideas. That said, the location of the penetrations should be relatively accurate.
To be specific, I will pick a winner based on the extent to which the design is 1) modern 2) realistic/affordable/build-able. This includes an accurate representation of the penetrations and inclusion of material type. 3) original. I would expect some sort of change in depth or an "architectual element" as opposed to just different finishes rendered onto a rectangle.
I plan to use Hardie cement panels or lap siding on the side and and yet-to-be-determined material on the front--this is very common in Chicago if that seems odd to you. It's because you don't really see the side of buildings as they are so close together. Material is up to you but again, it can't be very expensive. No vinyl siding and I'd prefer to stay away from brick.
I've included the current facade just for reference (window and door locations, etc.) but please try to ignore the current "architectual element."
No need for plan drawings; just elevation and/or perspective.
