Black-cedar exterior of Sylvan Rock house by S3 Architecture and Aston Martin

A house designed by Aston Martin features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features Sylvan Rock, a home designed by luxury carmaker Aston Martin.

US studio S3 Architecture collaborated with Aston Martin's architectural design service to create Sylvan Rock, an angular black-cedar home in Hudson Valley, New York.

When completed, the house will be the first property to be fully realised under Aston Martin's Automotive Galleries and Lairs service, which launched last year.

Readers aren't impressed though, with one saying the brand should "stick to making cars."
