The SPG Architects Pawling Residence is reminiscent of the beloved Hobbiton village in Tolkein's Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Although not built into the side of a hill, the house is surrounded by greenery and hilly landscape that makes this residence similar to the famous fictional village.
Hobbiton aside, the home was built for a couple from NYC looking for a place to escape the city. Consisting of two stories and sitting on a five acre plot of land, the residence is practical and cozy, allowing this couple to relax during every vacation. The SPG Architects Pawling Residence is a perfect example of feasible architecture with elegant results.
Implications - Many consumers still have the effects of the economic recession looming over their heads, and are reluctant to make lavish purchases. Businesses that provide practical and non-opulent products will appeal to this broad consumer base.
