This piece of architecture is stunning. The shapes are weighted and balanced well; the rectangular forms are intriguing. The linear ribbing on the exterior is another layer of texture and interest, but those wispy lines of grass tickling the bottom edge of the structure make the architecture nestle into its environment. Visually, the movement of the long grass breaks up the exactness of the architectural line.
Metal ribbed panels could read industrial and cold, but whimsical grasses make them come alive. The vertical line of the grasses echoes the line of the ribbing but moves with the wind. Also notice the bright green ground-hugging plants on the wall's top and bottom.
This beautiful home is designed to highlight various rectangular shapes. From simple squares to elongated rectangles, the walls and windows are fit into a perfect puzzle. The only problem? All those squares could read as too mathematical, too sterile. Trees that break into the lines of the home make all the difference.
