47 perhaps. For the rest they are rather closed, I'd say. The average Dutch rowhouse is more revealing than this (though the average Dutch rowhouse is rather revealing perhaps)

it's an interesting neighbourhood - I like a lot the first two and the last one. 35 and the one of ralf tamm are interesting too. I'll try and remember to visit some times

It's in the list to revisit. Though unfortunately there are no Ryanair and Wizzair flights going there.

I've been in the baltics some years ago, but I was very badly prepared, I just saw the city centre and some random parts of the outskirts which striked me as very beautiful but rather boring, to be honest. But I've come across quite some interesting things about Tallinn since. Also, Romanian artist and writer Calin Dan wrote in 'emotional architecture' about the integration of (modern) architecture in estonian society, which he claims he never felt as naturally supported as in Estonia, except perhaps in the Netherlands. The quality of the architecture shown above proves him right, perhaps, another reason for curiosity. And I need to take a proper look at the Linnahall, which is a structure that fascinates me.

My visit to Riga was even more unfortunate, since someone broke into my van and I spent most of my time in the police station trying to explain I needed a proper form for the insurance . But that one is on the list too, and on the list of cities to perhaps work for a year.

wow, great! What a coincidence. I picked up Dan's book in Bucharest, where I studied for half a year. Never thought I would meet anyone elso knowing it, until I found Emotional Architecture II in the Hague, in a library of Stroom - an institute for art in public space. He gave a lecture there and apparently he lives in Amsterdam - I must even have his phonenumber somewhere.

Great, if I go, I'll let you know for sure

Well, some of this houses are concrete and glazzy boxes.
But, others are quite beautiful. Nice neighbourhood.
Here in Buenos Aires, there are lots of this suburbs, and designs are very similar.

You should not have quoted the whole post dude. That makes the page to be heavier and slower.

Architect: John Milner Architects, Inc. johnmilnerarchitects.com

Landscape Architect: Jonathan Alderson Landscape Architects, Inc. jonathanalderson.com

Builder: E.B. Mahoney Builders

Photographer: Don Pearse Photographers, Inc. Tom Crane Photography, Inc.

Competition Entered: 2009 Brick In Architecture Awards Competition

Awards Won: Best in Class

Project Description: Inspired by 19th century French design, this 6000 square foot single family residence was constructed in 2005 and further expanded in the Winter of 2008-2009. Hidden from the street and neighboring properties, the approach onto the grounds is through a grand, ornate brick & iron entrance gate down a long meandering drive. The building itself is nestled at the end of the drive in an existing valley of mature trees, a narrow stream, and small connecting ponds. Access into the house is gained through a low brick walled garden consisting of water features, native flowering plants and a flanking loggia. The exterior of the residence is constructed of several types of hand molded red brick that feature dark mortar, decorative brick diaper patterns, brick door and window surrounds, terracotta accents and terracotta tile roofing. Great care & design was used to emphasize the historic use of brick and its decorative capabilities and to complement the site's evolving seasonal colors. Conducive to the client’s requirements, the interior plan is intimate in scale and open in circulation with highly detailed millwork & finishes. Antique French stone mantles surround Roman brick fireboxes & hearths laid in decorative angled patterns.

Green Building or Sustainable Design Principles used in this Project: The residence was designed to coexist with, and utilize, the existing unique landscape topography. The home's placement in the landscape minimized site disturbance and maximized natural light and ventilation. Energy efficient windows and insulation were used to minimize energy consumption. Renewable materials were maximized in the building's construction- in particular- brick and terra cotta. Local materials and craftsmen were also utilized.
