Studioctopi designed Park Avenue South, a home that not-so-gracefully combines old and new architectural styles. The main section of the house is traditional brick, but the front section is decidedly modern.
The two sections of Park Avenue South look like they were designed completely separately, and then oddly mashed together. It isn’t a totally negative effect, but it would require some getting used to. Park Avenue South was photographed by Lyndon Douglas.
Implications - And he does a fantastic job of juxtaposing the two parts of the house, highlighting their eccentricities and helping hammer home the strange nature of this collaboration. Nevertheless, there's something intriguing about a house like this. I can't imagine turning down a night there.
