Monday means “Real Or Rendering” day. This latest installment features a serpentine brick home “in” Madison, Wisconsin. It’s a great little project, one set amid a small, but vibrant cluster of trees that shield the home from its neighbors. Mirrors mounted on the brick walls endlessly reflect the grass and trees, extending what is a suburban lot into a sprawling country lawn. But wait a minute, is there something off here? Is the brick relief too flat, or is it just about right? What about those shadows and how they play off the shoots of grass? Do the reflections off the mirror look right? Let us know what you think in the comments.
