Architecture is a language. The first two homes are speaking gibberish among the scholars!
This modern architecture uses materials like it's crossing off a wish list. Sorry, I agree with all the comments that speak of them being out of context with their surroundings.
Too many architects are trying to create their own language and break the rules to stand out from the pack.

If new infills matched style of old neighbour houses, that street view would have no "spice" at all, boring and same-looking. Old, not-livable houses are being demolished, and what better replacement than innovative construction and architecture? As per the values of the houses - they go up with newer constructions near by.
