'The two-story concrete wall that lines the open-riser stairway absorbs heat in the winter ..'. And from someone who has lived in a concrete structure, winters are going to be VERY cold in this house and will require much, much more heat than a drywalled home to keep it at a comfortable temp in winter.
And to blend seemlessly it would have to dug into the earth. A great example of our further encroachment into what was a pristine natural area now divided into private properties.
You people are so negative and short-sighted! The house is built on stilts to protect it from global sea rise and it will blend in perfectly after after the grass dies and turns brown when the atmosphere heats up another .0000069 degrees centigrade.
What an antiseptic, Better-Homes-and-Gardens but never lived-in looking building. Certainly not a home.
Blend in? How about perched upon. And on stilts no less. (I do like the view of the other homes in the foreground).
"Blend in" would/should be 'to make inobtrusive' to anyone and still present the highlight views the owner is looking for.
Perhaps with better photographs we could agree that this house does what it has been presented as doing but, I'm sorry, there are better examples of naturalizing a home to its surroundings and creating dramatic views.
