Very cool house. Is this a Wright design?

I ask the same question, VioletSky... Doesn't look like it but I don't know. what i love is all the skylights. :)

VioletSky said...

No, it isn't a Wright (I just thought the quote was apt for this one) It is a local house that is wonderfully situated, and blew me away when I saw all those windows and skylights when the trees were bare. I thought it suited the b&w treatment.

Von said...

He was always right, oh sorry ban unintentional pun!Nice house,see why you like it.

Pete said...

lovely photo

VioletSky said...

Char: although, the geese also love the lawn, don't know where they when I took this

Von: all puns are loved!

Pete: thanks. somehow, the b&w makes it look more futuristic.

Simone said...

Love your quote.

Looks surrealistic.

Dianne said...

the quote is wonderful!

I love the peaceful darkened hue of the photo
it lets the art of the home come out on its own

well done!

Very unusual architecture but I love it. Lots of light inside that house I'm sure!

VioletSky said...

Simone: thanks. as impressive as the windows are, I cannot imagine living there.

Dianne: thank you. I almost never alter the photos on this site (except for cropping), but I wanted to make the house stand out from that one dominating evergreen and got carried away.

Jientje: it faces south, so those trees are necessary for more than privacy!
