Attack of the Killer Roof

Its really hard not to love a beach house. A house! By the beach! What’s not to love, right? Well, I have found a house that, well, since this is a design blog and not a random rant blog, let’s just say I’m not enamored with this design choice and leave it at that.

Let’s start with what’s good – lots of lightness, whiteness and glass. A gorgeous deck that provides stunning views. Clean, minimalist interior. Love this part, we’re here for the beach, not the chotchkies.

But, I just cannot get past this jarring, crushing roof. Why, why, why did the architects decide to smoosh this potentially lovely house with this monstrous scary top?
