  1. There’s just something about that house, its placement in the landscape, and the way it is shot that is perfect. The Ne Plus Ultra indeed.
    As I’ve said, I knew nothing about this, although I’m a huge, untutored fan of that kind of design and the beauty of photography.
    Both the photograph and the house are models of composition, I love the way the house and the greenery and the landscape fit together. Humanity transforming the desert and making disparate elements somehow harmonize.

  2. It a house as pure art and it can also be lived in I would imagine quite comfortably.Good houses of all periods manage to fit into and enhance the landscape in which they sit.
