Revenge of the "T-House"


The creepy metal house I blogged a while ago was brought back to my attention by my uncle who's a more adept Googler than me.

He found out this:
Built in the early 90s by architects Simon Ungers and Tom Kinslow, the house belongs to a writer and houses a 10,000 volume library. It's clad in heavy steel with a nickel and chromium finish. The top bar of the "T" (44' x 12' x 16') contains the library.
Excerpted from The Architectural Record, full entry here.

Maybe it's not as evil a house as I thought....still I wouldn't turn my back on it.
