Which do I like best ? Them all , in their own ways .

The Powell Street place looks dark and therefore less inviting to me , but the overall concept is well executed .

The second place I admire the history and provenance , and how it is true to that , even if it is too 'industrial' for my taste .

Likewise , the interior of the NZ place is beautiful , personally I feel the outside is too stark and boring , but I'm guessing that is the contrast they are after .

In other words -- I understand why each is as it is , and admire the concepts and executions .

I like house 2 the best. It looks like the Jetson's house and is more visually interesting than the other dark grey "boxes" in this story.

II like that it has been designed to work with it's site and also heat/cool without using much power.

Powell St is my favorite, I am partial to industrial looks. They're all beautiful and artistic.
