It would depend on its context.

I bet the house is full glass on the backside.... It's either situated in The Netherlands or Belgium.

It's in Amsterdam, in one of those few areas designated for "free style construction"

I present to you...the houses of Suriname.

Yo dawg, I heard you like houses so here's a house icon on your house so you can house while you house.



¯\_��_/¯





Blue glass everywhere...



Glass block everywhere...



Compare to the traditional Charleston/Caribbean style (UNESCO World Heritage) in Paramaribo and elsewhere...

What is the goal of extending the roofs so they become overhangs? Creating shade on the windows?

Something like that would have to do with natural ventilation in humid areas. It's called the "Venturi Effect," where acceleration occurs as air passes through an opening.

This is sad, especially the split AC units on the side.

especially the old palaces with pointed roofs

Neo-historicist but it still looks soulless and ugly, thanks to the poorly chosen, cheap materials. Needs more doors at street level, and cobblestone instead of cracked asphalt. The brick in between the individual facades is overbearing and those yellow shades are atrocious.

Neo-historic buildings are necessarily kitsch. Including reconstructions of long-gone structures.

I'd say necessarily pastiche, not kitsch. Kitsch seems to refer to more cheaply done/garish stuff.

I wouldn't even go as far as calling it "necessary" but it's really important for some cities to preserve its image.
But, sometimes it can go too far to the point where it kick-start a housing crisis due to restriction on building
more and bigger accommodations within the city's perimeter.

Here's another example for architecture darkness; A ~5900 sqm (~63000 sqf) "House" in Saudi Arabia.
This is the darkest side of Architecture for me..
