This architecture is so awesome! This 1,700-square-foot extension to what was once a 1,000-square-foot Edwardian-style home. The crazy cantilevered design is quite a risk. The architects, from what I read, designed it that way in order to sidestep a building code that restricted how close they could get to the property’s edge. The owners, two doctors with three children, named the home “Trojan” because when they close the window shutters, they can see out but no one can see in. The architecture has amazingly clean lines and color, so simple, yet gorgeous.
