I’d probably prefer cleaner lines and a few more windows in a home like this, but I like it as an example of what Mr. Tom Friedman calls, "building up not out." The home is called the useful + agreeable house. Moco Loco called it a mini hi-rise, which is kind of catchy. I kind of like sound of midget mid-rise, but I’m not really sure if that word is off limits. Designed by Neil M. Denari Architects, the u+a house should fit in a variety of locations, including weird and/or small lots that allow some height.
I really like the roof lookout, too (pictured below). Every home deserves some chill space in the top spot, don’t you think?! Any thoughts?
