I would assume that its more of a champagne fridge. We have our alcohol fridge in a far away part of the house.

with no viewing window and freezer at the bottom?

Fair point. Still feels much more like a secondary fridge than a main one. Would expect at the very least for fitted white goods in that kind of kitchen...

either way, even though I like Corb furniture, the space still strikes me as poorly designed. That big block above the brown couch just closes up the whole place.
But I like the floors. And the mobile-thing.

Seen this place before, it's Osaka I think. Almost nothing can be made/decorated to western aesthetic ideals here since a square foot costs a fuckton, it probably costs $10-15k just to own the square footage for that fridge. That pod above the LC2 3p is probably the bedroom. The whole house is probably about 1000sq ft from what I can surmise. I was hinting more at something like this, with a good car as objet:

btw that lady I was talking about before, she also has a Miura ffffuuuu.gif

^this. not a huge fan of the high-rise. seems even more egomaniacal than having the car as a centerpiece. I like the larger open plan stand alone home.

I'm a big fan of Japanese architecture and fully figured that place was in Japan, I just think the overall design of the space is not that great. The car doesn't help either. Things like fridges at opposite ends of where cooking would be done always annoy me.

the second pic seems quite nice from the outside, though it's hard to tell how the inside space is used from that pic.

It's great as a concept, but we can quickly agree it's not perfect and it needs to be bigger for it to work.


I have always wanted a large sub terrain garage with a hidden entrance beneath the house, total batcave.

I hear people say this all the time, but do you realize how much of a pain in the ass it can be to drive an exotic around for daily duty even in good weather? Steep driveways you can't get up, speed bumps too high to pass without bottoming out, not wanting to leave the car out of sight because last time you did you came back and found someone sitting on the hood having a picture taken. smile.gif The stress of it can quickly outweigh the joy of it, trust me.

Yeah, the bottom pic is some $35m house in America (garage is awesome, but under the house) and the Japanese house with the Countach is probably less than 1/10th of that, and it's tiny, naturally. I'm guessing the owner is a single male.

But think of the nice nearby surface on which to fry eggs after warming up the car.

just walked past a white 458 spider outside my hotel but dammit, the freaking mass plates just ruined the look of the car. im now convinced that a supercar CANNOT look good with the rectangular US plates.

anyway, i will someday own a ferrari. but until then, baby steps redface.gif

If it were a Miura, you could flame-broil something on it. devil.gif

(this is in my neighborhood, but from last summer when I wasn't here:)

I believe it, but at the same time, I see too many garage queens. It is a shame how low mileage some of these machines are.

Then again, with kids, no exotics for me right now - just trying to figure out how many car seats can fit across the back seats of different cars nowadays (sadly looks like the Panamera is going to be only two...)
