  • i’m enjoying the articulated minimal language, and choicest materials!

    CROFTdesign says:
  • ditto, very well done. elegant and functional. the almost seamless transition between interior and exterior in the bedroom is nice as well.

    tyson says:
  • well, i was entertained. beautiful wooden design but this is too much for me!

    Dina Orane says:
  • I think that the design looks very clean, but too dull.

    PF says:
  • Boring but not horrible, I was hoping for something better. Wright did this 80 years ago, nothing new. The Romans did this 2000 years ago. Great Idea just not fabulous for today’s standards. I’d like to see Ghery mess with this, then we’d have something to gawk at.

    Korby says:
  • Very elegant! Not everything has to scream “Look at me!” A Gehry-like effect could probably be simulated with the wrap tool in Photoshop.

    John says:
  • skillful, exquisite detailing

    I think that someone will lead a very beautiful life in this home

    dbkii says:
  • Not every design has to be exceptional. This one has good thought put into it and I’m sure the owners will find a quiet harmony within it d;-)

    Jetwax says:
  • Btw, Frank Lloyd Wright was inspired by japanese architecture, when he built the series of prairie houses. That time japonism was en vogue…

    I like the house very much. it is unspectacular and works well as background for daily life. It is based on traditional japanese housing and deals well with the todays’ needs.
    And think of that, you’re able to live in it! (Other concepts as spectacular as they may be, don’t tolerate inhabitants (with they’re fear of being exhibtionists).
