      nice shot but the colours are a little bit cold to live there. Greets

      cvrcakoli, that's an interesting point. However we live in such a hot climate I prefer cool colors myself. Looks like today is going to be 76 degrees (25C).
      Our summer last more than 6 mo. and winter is very mild.

      If you are interested to read, my friend Will found the article "Stories of Stretto House" , architect Steven Holl talks about whey they call this Stretto House.

      Yeah, I can't see much in the house about symmetry. I think the translation was an ideas-catalyst, thats all. I'm not a fan of the official text on this one, about the curved roof planes.

      Still, there are some pretty interesting spaces created, no?

    16. fake_plastic_earth 37 months ago | reply

      see.jay, I think Steven Holl did great job following concept.

      If you find the site plan of this house, I would recommend to review. Not just spaces in the house but relationship to the pool, landscape, creek, and guest house are phenomenal.
      Specially I adore the house is tacked in from the street.

      BTW, I am excited to announce that some of photos from Stretto house featured in popular Architectural blog site "A Daily Dose of Architecture" by John Hill~
