i wonder whether anyone likes this type of modern design, or would you go for the more traditional type grand house, that is if you won that much money.

to be honest, from the outside it looks like an alien creature has landed. personally I would go for a more traditional house but it would have to have an integrated swimming pool and be very close to a sandy beach on the English coast.

no! it's not pretty.....give me a good old fashioned manor pile any day x
Well if everybody wanted a mock-tudor footballers manion the world would be very dull.

They're also likely to be able to bypass planning permisiion with this design via the replacement to 'Gummers law'

I like it, but if I could only have one house then I'm more traditional at heart. It'd be a nice second or third house though; maybe for holidays.

i confess i don't care for the design, and wonder if it will get planning permission.. perhaps they will get in Kevin McDonald from Grand Designs...
Ughh think it's horrid !
Question Author
just realised there are more pictures if you click the left or right arrows on the link.. doesn't look something i would live in however
It's different enough for me not to hate it but I much prefer traditional.

Thank god it's something different...

Me, I like things fairly brutal and modern. Anyone with a spare jackpot winning lottery ticket, it would be greatly appreciated if you could send it my way.
I think it's wonderful. I've lived in rambling old houses, hard to heat, everything breaks or falls off in your hand, nothing works, not designed for modern living, very over rated, plus I've always fancied living in an earth ship and this looks like a posh one of those :)
Christopher Wren had to fight like mad to get St. Paul's approved - everybody thought it was a monstrosity.

What we like asthetically tends to be formed by our experience and what is familiar and comforting to us.

It's OK but it reminds me a bit too much of what people in the 70s might have thought a future home would look like

nope sorry, any money i get i keep.
Mr BM would probably want something like this. He's all for ultra modern, eco friendly, ground source heat pumps, solar panels etc etc. But he would want it to look like a show house.

Whereas i couldn't care less just so long as I had a big garden with a few acres.
I'd love the 10 car garage.....but does it mean driving through the waterfall to put the car away?
Question Author
Christopher Wren didn't get the Cathedral he wanted, that was far more classical Greek in design than what eventually got built. However i am not a modernist in the architectural sense, i loathe The Shard for instance, some like it i know, but it just looks so out of place, pity the poor souls that had to put up with the disruption whilst it was being built.
Question Author
gness, don't know, but ten cars, that's not very eco friendly is it, or perhaps they are all electric cars, but wait a minute.....
I'd love a big Victorian house with with a large garden.
Eco home....10 car garage, waterfall... swimming pool?
