The connection between basement and the rest of the house seems awkward and dishonest. Seems like you try to hide something but unsuccesfuly. Maybe if the construction was less by the book, the concept would turn out much true to itself. Pattern of the glass facades is much better on the sketch.

I feel there is a great disconnect between the two facades. Greater attention could have been given to the transition of the cedar shake and white walls.

If you were serious about the environment, you wouldnt be building bi-family house...

Love to see the use of traditional building techniques translated into modern architecture.

I love the guy in shorts taking a shot of the window in the shot looking out the window.

ndmlosi · June 14, 2010 11:11 AM

the guy you're referring to is the photographer; the shot is looking at the exterior. it's funny either way though.
