This is a cool looking house, right?…But why?

This house, being a pure form and having bold geometry, demonstrates how “absence“ can compliment a building design and strengthen a visual theme. This residence is a strong pure form in the landscape; the bold shape is complimented by the absence of both transitional landscaping and auxiliary building elements. It’s not there…
