      Just because the two projects have some principle in common, that doesn’t mean it’s a copy and paste!

      Do you really think these guys were the first ? what about Future System’s one then… and probably others before them too… com’on

    I can see some similarities, but it’s far from being a copy paste project dude….

    this was a very nice project, keep in mind that everything you do in arhitecture is just a repeat of someone else’s in your own way whether you know it or not.

    similar typology but I find the work of DECA much more integrated within the landscape. The materials are also well chosen, and the roof at the level of the road and patios with the gentle slope are helping the fusion between the landscape and the house.
    I rarely say this, but I would have liked to have this idea… I’d like to see more pictures, including pictures of the interior. The website of the architects is not giving much more explanations.
