Your own biodome! But blue!

This listing is setting off my vertigo. Am I not being fair, I wonder? Is a better photo even possible when you're dealing with a home that's half scaffolding, half Zoom set?

It reminds me of Le Centre Pompidou in Paris a little bit, at least from the outside. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centre_Georges_Pompidou

I just think of my one-year-old falling to an untimely end! Yikes!

I couldn't live there unless most of the steelwork was covered in padding.

There would be a continuous "dong" sound throughout the home from me trying to walk around.

HEY! I know whose house this is...this belongs to the "BlueMan Group!"

My roomate thinks it belongs to Sears becuase they call themselves the "Blue Team."

Wow, $895k for a "fixer."

I like the external duct work, I wonder if I can use that idea at my house to solve the 'no crawlspace or attic' issue with my pipes and a/c duct?

Maybe the blue M&M lives there?

Open and airy, perfect for entertaining or hosting a light saber duel.

I want to buy that and fill it full of monkeys.

@flyingchange: It's $895k for a fixer, but I'm betting the neighbors will chip in to reduct the price if the new buyer will pick a more neutral color. I think the Smurfs are the current residents, as they would let the place run down more than the classy Blue Man Group or Blue M&M tribe ...

This hurts my head!

Who buys an industrial/modern home and fills it with Victorian era antiques?

7Seas said...

This seems like a good example of a bizzare house rather than poorly-chosen photos... I agree, not sure there really is a good way to photograph this thing. Whatever it is. I'm still not entirely sure, it's like Escher's Erector Set.

7Seas said...

Webbie -- well, steampunk enthusiasts might do that.

But then they'd leave the beams bare metal rather than paint them that ungodly blue...

no one mentioned your nod to the awesome kids show ZOOM.... loved it!

"Bring your contractor and your imagination." I think someone already brought a little too much imagination. How about a bulldozer?

I really, really like this! But then, I'm an artist, so there you go. I agree about the furniture, though. That needs to be modern. And it needs plants. LOTS of plants.
