Why change the style for a garage studio?

shawnie_56November 14, 2012
The house is adorable BUT ..the studio addition looks like an industrial afterthought and does NOT fit with the house , even a little. Could they not have at least put a Cape Cod "Front" on it?

The exterior of the studio appears as “stucco cubes” to contrast the traditional form and style of the dwelling and offer a dialectical spirit to the whole.

Sorry but the garage is sorely out of place next to this darling house. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

speaking as a painter, I think that the extreme contrast in styles would work better if some of the colors from the house were used. There is too much of a disconnect , each structure takes away from the other, especially the beautiful color selections for the house.
