Do you live in a mullet house?

by allthoughtswork

Outdoor, Shrubs, Front Yard, Trees, Gardens, and Small Patio, Porch, Deck Instead of focusing on reworking the street-facing front wall of the house, they turned their attention to the back wall, and found a better way to connect the interiors with the beautiful garden. This allowed them to stay true to the suburban vernacular of gabled brick walls and a terra-cotta roof, while modernizing the back section of the house quite dramatically. 

Back Yard, Concrete Patio, Porch, Deck, Grass, Trees, Exterior, Brick Siding Material, and House Building Type The architects cleared out the ground floor and created an open-plan living, dining, and kitchen area along an elongated section at the rear. Floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors were installed in this part of the house to connect the interiors with the spacious garden. This light-filled and highly-transparent half of the ground floor now serves as a shady extension of the lush green garden.   

Traditional in the front, modern in the back. I think they botched the reference, but I like the concept.

I’m going to utilize it when I become insanely wealthy to maintain a cool, low key facade for the public while secretly living a life of luxury. All you have to do is rip the labels off everything, people are stupid.

  1. clever idea – not sure I would want to live in some of these hybrid houses though

    replacing walls of a room with floor to ceiling glass would be great if the vista looking outward was of rolling green English countryside, a west of Scotland seascape, or a panoramic view of the Rocky mountains

    but it’s not quite such an attractive proposition in an urban landscape !

    [forbye that, I wouldn’t be able to pad about naked if there was a risk of being overlooked by nosy, prudish neighbours]
