I'm very excited, tasteful friends

One of the finest houses I have ever seen.

What are you excited about, OP? Is that your new home?

by Anonymousreply 112/27/2012

It could be, for the price of a 1 bedroom apartment in Manhattan.

Fabulous setting.

Love it.

I suspect based on the width and depth of the house, they contoured based on the property lot size. Creative yet functional.

I love it!

I want it, and I want to pick it up and move it to a place that has a view worth looking at.

It's beautiful. I hate the furniture though. And I'm just imagining what the ceiling over the kitchen will be like after cooking in there for a year or two. Ewww.

I didn't want to like it but after the pix, that is awesome.

I don't do minimalism.

Lovely views. Just too minimalist for me. I do not understand the kitchen.

Very nice building site, but if they wanted a cave, why didn't they just dig out the hillside?

How does it stay up during quakes?

by Anonymousreply 1312/27/2012

That thing will somersault down the hill in a quake.

It would be like living on a subway platform in Astoria.

Yes, it seems very under-engineered for Japan, unless there are some very serious hidden supports.

Love it, though. Love elegant minimalism, small spaces used fabulously, and sweeping views.

I second that emotion.

I guess it's ok if you wanna live in a taco shell.

Site is not iPad friendly. Could only see 1 photo, the first one. Hate those fucking slide show sites. Just put the fucking pics all on the same page and I'll pick the ones I want to look at. Like those "10 best/worst cities for..." articles that make you load a new page for each city profiled. Fucking poor user interface! OK. Rant over. House looks cool.

So the smell of cooking permeates the whole space, including the bedroom.

Lovely setting, great use of glass, but an ugly worm of a building with awkward volumes and unpleasant shapes.

R2, you seem not to realize that the price depends on those valuable two words at the end: "in Manhattan."

Who wants a house in Japan?

by Anonymousreply 2312/27/2012

The Japanese, r23?

by Anonymousreply 2412/27/2012

I love minimalism but this is boring and ugly. It's like living in a covered bus stop.

by Anonymousreply 2512/27/2012

That was lovely, thank you.
