Would you live here? Inhabitat brings us the ‘Stark White House’

Designed by the architect & design firm of Elding Oscarson in Sweden, the ‘Stark White House’ is being featured this week in Inhabitat‘s blog: “a weblog devoted to the future of design, tracking the innovations in technology, practices and materials that are pushing architecture and home design towards a smarter and more sustainable future.”

As a real estate estate, I find the dramatic departure from architectual style of the neighborhood to be a bit startling. But I do appreciate the low carbon footprint and the bright minimalist space. Give me a wall and door on that bathroom and I could live there. Would you?

    I’m not sure. It looks cold, impersonal and a bit commercial. However, the use of space is quite clever, and I do like the low carbon footprint. I do wish the exterior could have been more in line with the architectural feel of the neighborhood, though. It stands out a bit too much for my taste. I much prefer to blend.

    I agree with you that I would prefer the house to blend better with the surrounding architecture. I love the roof-top garden though.
