44 Westgate, Huddersfield, England



The original end of terrace building burnt down a very long time ago, it was replaced for many years by a ill-fitting single storey wooden clad building, before finally being replaced a couple of years ago by the current building, which pays homage to its surroundings.

Right... because this is the best thing since sliced bread:


Apart from the feature at the bottom right of the second picture, those houses don't even look Chinese. I can easily see this development in somewhere like Sweden.
