    I think the copper is beautiful, but seriously, does the interior have to be so naked?

    Why is the house empty?

    this house *screams* dwell magazine.

    the interior is a little on the bare side for me (that minimalist bedroom totally works for me, though), for every day living, but the exterior is absolutely fabulous!

    and, what's up with the completely normal-seeming dining chairs? they look so out of place to me.

    1) Who the fuck wants to live in a fishbowl for all the world to oggle?

    2) More empty minimalism. You know, people actually LIVE in houses. They don't just sit in the single, artfully placed retro chair in an empty room, staring out the window to contemplate the nature of the universe for fucks sake.

    3) clean up that pile of hay in the front or you'll get wild asses!

    Looks like an updated mobile home. I have to admit-I do love those floors.

    It looks like it fell from outer space and just landed in some random field. I happen to care about how a house is sited, and this is ridiculously non-integrated with the environment, which is what gives it a mobile-home feeling.

    I love copper. Not impressed with this house, though.

    lol i agree about the dining chairs. i think they photographed it when it was barely done and probably not really furnished yet. that said, i would probably choose different furniture if it were my place.
    i love the exterior though, the copper is amazing and i love the construction.

    Why is there a bus shelter in this field? LOL It's so minimalist the bed doesn't even have pillows. Now that's harsh.

    It needs to be in a clifftop, overlooking the ocean. And it needs FURNITURE.

    i don't agree. i think it is an integrated part of the landscape seeing that the construction follows the flow of the surrounding land and the repurposed copper seems to contrast nicely with the darkish grassy fields. it's quite simplistic/modest in its design but the outcome is pretty fabulous. i dig it.

    eta: and the modesty of the house compliments the rural character of its location. i really can't find any faults here.

    Hell I would happily live in a mobile home like this! I really like it, and the spaces inside-I usually do not like very modern HOME architecture. But this I like. Of course I would do extensive landscaping, etc. and you know, actually add FURNISHINGS to the place-hate the minimalist approach in interior decorating!

    *Also if this thing would oxidize over time and have that lovely green patina, I would be in heaven-I LOVE that oxidized green copper! If I had the money to have that place, then I would have the money to have it treated to get that aged look too!

    *Also it is very possible to make a mobile home fit into it's surroundings with the right landscaping, siting, fencing, 'outbuildings' etc.-so much so that they may not even be recognized as mobile homes-it just is not done very often.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!
