Industrial Strength House… with Bonus Gypsy Wagon?

Okay, so it’s a modern concrete and glass box, floating on the water. I can dig.

Cool arched hallway, can’t say I’d enjoy keeping it clean, though.

The inside feels a bit cold and impersonal, but hey if that’s what floats your boat (or your house, as the case may be)…

Whoa. Um. What? Boom: Backyard Gypsy Wagon out of nowhere.

  1. I usually don’t go for the overdone concrete monsters, and this is certainly one of those, but there’s something about this place that kind of works for me. I like cozy, but I also like to do urban exploration, hence my screen name. This is like being able to do urban exploration without leaving the house. With the right decor, this otherwise cold, industrial behemoth could be made somewhat cozy. Maybe I could just live in the gypsy wagon and have fun visiting the house.

    Sounds like a delightful and creative solution!

    For me, most of the spaces look like they’d be perfect for gallery space, especially for statuary. Sleek surfaces that can take lots of foot traffic, lots of natural light, gorgeous grounds, and even a delightful little plant-filled conservatory in which to have a light, yet high-end lunchtime repast (Pic 11). It’s even priced as a museum building would be. What it’s doing being a private home is beyond me. All I can say is that it looks like these particular gypsies have certainly moved up in the world.

  4. I concur – it looks like the gallery/gift shop of a drop-dead-gorgeous garden estate museum. That tropical plant conservatory is to die for, with the pond landscape vistas to point the way toward the afterlife. :D

    I would live in the barely-glimpsed brown stone carriage house, which seems to have a paved approach to its’ old hay door at the end of one of the new place’s concourses. I suspect it contains at least a fab apartment, though it may still contain stables. (Perhaps stables and Gypsy wagon are a nod toward some historic nature of the site?)
