  2. Modernism's not my taste, but to each his own. My real issue here is the lack of front porches. Having recently moved from a 1960's suburb to a neighborhood built circa 1900, I've come to realize the importance of front porches in fostering social interactions. Why is it that I have yet to find a front porch rendered in contemporary architectural forms. Are porches seen as anti modern?

  3. Porches are not anti-modern at all, though it seems most clients are less interested in the social aspect and more interested in the form. Most of the homes we have built in some way address the street albeit not in the "traditional" sense but do have a presence. It really comes down to what the client is after and how the site impacts the overall design....

  4. t's my personal taste, I know, but I lean towards this style. I'm just surprised that with these modern villa designs, I don't see very many with rain gutters, solar panels, wind mills, etc, etc... Step by step. But for me, if I was took the step towards a modern villa, I would take the next baby step, and look at other additional modern features, and not just the design... Looking at function too...

  6. I absolutely love this style - simple, functional and thoroughly modern. Perfabricated housing as unsurprisingly becoming more and more popular these days. Not only because of the reduced cost, but from an environmental stand point they're a huge improvement over buildings constructed solely onsite.
