Combining Historic with Modern Aesthetics at Model ReModel

The Model ReModel attached ADU will feature a contemporary, clean look, balancing out the main home's Victorian style

Model ReModel 2022 remodeler Symbi Homes has finalized the exterior of their new 850-square-foot accessory dwelling unit (ADU) in Hyattsville, MD.

The ADU, which will house an aging-in-place couple, will feature universal design elements on the interior and a sophisticated and modern exterior. 

Symbi chose dark charcoal for the roof and siding, contrasted by ProVia doors in Hibiscus—a bright salmon color—and jet black window frames. 

"The Symbi aesthetic often leans towards a monotone, organic color palette with occasional pops of color," says Symbi Homes CEO Nicole Tysvaer. "I think we accomplished that here. I love the way the lap siding evokes the Japanese Shou Sugi Ban-style of charred wood but at a fraction of the cost."
