I get that architects need something new and innovative to add to the same old houses out here. But I have one complaint! There is an upside down house in our subdivision. It wants to mimick the split level homes so popular in the midwest in past decades. But we don't have basements, so it is just a house with all the bedrooms at the bottom, and the kitchen/living room on top. This poses a problem for me. Our house is normal, but flanked by two upside down houses. That means our master bedroom looks out to our neighbor's living room. Our bathroom window has a view of the neighbor's kitchen. You see the problem? Just a bad idea!
Too much "innovation" can lead to watching your neighbor bathe while you make dinner.
