This is a house in John street. iHave no idea about it at all, but i walked by it, and i thought it was astoundounding. Residential architecture does not get much more austere and severe, and beautiful than this! Pretty hard line modernism from the early 70s i would guess, great use of red brick and yellow glass. It may have dated in the colour scheme, but the idea and geometry is still as fresh as ever.  I love the way its kind of half perched and nestled in to the slope. It really looks like it belongs there. great.
