Hyundai’s Design Chief Says New 2022 Tucson Will “Pop” Amongst Rivals In A Competitive Segment

2022 Hyundai Tucson debut
Hyundai’s new fourth-gen Tucson will compete internationally in the hyper-competitive compact crossover segment. Hyundai

Hyundai’s all-new 2022 Tucson proves there’s still a lot of life in the compact crossover segment, and that design matters as much as multiple powertrain options.

Hyundai has sold over 7 million Tucsons internationally since it launched the first generation in 2004. Though the new version will come in both short- and long-wheelbase variants, the U.S. will only see the stretched model, a strategy on par with the American consumers’ taste for larger vehicles.

At the start of this project, Green Hammer Design Build was brought in simply to repair siding that had failed from moisture issues. The cause was improper flashing, and the shaded site had exacerbated the deterioration of the wet assembly. After discovering the extent of the damage, the homeowners decided the time was right for a deep-energy retrofit. While at it, they wanted to enhance the appearance of the entry. The builder removed the compromised siding and added exterior rigid-foam insulation to the 2×6 walls to beef up their thermal resistance. Special attention was paid to air-sealing, and a rainscreen was added for additional moisture control. Most of the building was re-clad in fiber-cement panels, and the windows were boxed out with sheet metal cut into trim pieces and riveted together. For a layered look on the front facade, the team used recessed rusted-steel panels against brightly colored fiber cement

It’s just one of the trends in decor this season, when the pandemic has made home an even more essential space for living, working, studying and more. Also on the watch list: flexible rooms, indoor and out.

COZY PALETTE

Hamilton says today’s brown palette is being used in new ways, as a neutral in all kinds of materials, and as an accent color.

“Brown feels very earthy and rich. It’s warm and inviting, and has the same grounding
