Beautiful On The Outside

Helen you legend, you were spot on with the Desire to Inspire link to the Kavellaris Urban Design perforated house as Graceful Taylor kindly pointed out. And just when I thought I'd found the ultimate exterior, Nancy passed on some links to the Sakura house in Meguro, Tokyo by Mount Fuji Architects Studio which is actually 'lace-like steel 3 mm thick that filters light like sunshine through foliage, with holes punched out in a floral pattern depicting cherry blossoms'.
