Good vs Bad

Since I seem to have taken up the task of saying what is right and wrong in the architectural world I would like to make a few comparisons.
For a mere $15,499,000 this crisp interpretation of a Wallace Neff home could be yours. As an added bonus it is located behind the prestigious gates of Shady Canyon. Needless to say, this is VERY good.

And then there is the bad, and when I say bad I mean atrocious.

And a big thank you to Ladera Ranch for its EXTREMELY lax architectural standards or else nouveaux riches wouldn't have a place to display their lack-luster style.

  1. I can't even imagine what the bill must be to cover the roof on the 'bad' one - clay tile, tons of gables, hundreds of 'squares' (I have become a roof person over the past week - a square is 100 square feet of roof material).
