Designing a concrete home residence is a possibility as well as evidenced in this house by Thomas Bendel. Concrete is perhaps one of the most useful tools in construction in stabilizing support structure or as a mainstay in road building. Though the entire home is not concrete, large proportions of it embrace its use which creates the “mood of the home”. Concrete for me speaks of a stark existence since it is such a raw construction form. My past experience is that it usually elicits a negative response from most people as it is not perceived as creating a “warm” home environment.
