Architect Graham Phillips'Skywood House ( AJ 11.11.99) looks stunning as a work ofart,but surely is more suited as a beautiful box to keep robots in.The photograph captures the house in dramatic fashion but,sorry to be practical,you would either
have to be very brazen to live there,or happy to crawl about on all fours with the lights off.
Imagine running a bath,and then remembering a magazine in the lounge you wanted to read while soaking,and not possessing a dressing gown! Or perhaps the curtains have yet to be fitted?
One benefit ofliving there would be the tremendous pressure to be tidy.Or am I just being pernickety?
