Whenever an architect says "I wanted to blur the boundaries between outdoor and in" I sort of cringe.
Because, you know, a lot of them say that and very few execute the idea. But then Christopher Polly (who didn't say that, btw) goes and designs this Haines House and "blurs the boundaries between outdoor and in" and I couldn't agree more.
I'm a texture and material whore so I really am digging this house. The floors paired with the wood-paneled walls with what appears to be some type of white stone tile for the fireplace is seriously making me sweat. Also there's some Corian action up in here. I'm still riding the Corian train. Choo choo (I got nothing this morning).
F**k, do I ever love this house. The interiors are totally "whatever" but how about that facade, eh? Do you think you could even muster up the balls to go inside of it? I'd just stand outside awkwardly, wondering if it improved of my outfit. This is the Anna Wintour of exteriors.
