“Our house, in the middle of the street” normally fits the rest of the neighborhood. Even though we like to give it a personal twist, we are never too bold. Or brave enought to have a completly different and innovative design.
Fortunately some people who go ‘mad’ with their architectural design. And so, today we give you some houses that are landscape statments. We belive green energy and computers will have a great impact on future houses.
