Oh, I so wanted to like this! But when I saw it, I immediately HATED the houses. Why destroy and deface beautifully preserved houses that have stood there for so long? I love contemporary architecture, but I don't think you should cut up old houses and added glass boxes. It just looks all wrong! If want to choose this chaotic style why not have it built?

Well done IQ Glass, amazing constructions that would suit my contemporary house, however I have to agree that it does not seem sympathetic with the original architecture.

I love glass structures on the "right" project but if it makes the owners happy and enhances their lives so be it.

As they say; "there's no accounting for peoples taste". I.M.O. these addittions are all just, WRONG...If you wanted modern, you ought to have bought modern. What the ... ' are local authorities thinking about when they issue permits for these weird constructions?
