    That design has a radical modern look and gets an amazing amount of useful space out of a very challenging plot of land. The way the inevitable and expensive “stacks” used for venting are integrated into the design is interesting. Those vertical elements make the roof areas look like a kind of viaduct.

    That original perspective now makes sense! Really like this design and agree about the great use of a challenging space and integration of the stacks.
