The primary draw of this house is the wild roof extension that takes flight from the cantilevered prow off the side of the house.   Combination of architecture, distinctive color scheme and colorful landscaping make this a landmark house in the area.   

A  The shape of the planter matches the drip line of the eaves.  Stylish, but maybe not so logical; excellent planter for all those plants that like to be shielded from sunlight and water.  

B  A downspout is cleverly disguised as one of the roof supports

C The tools used by designers, or for that matter the tools used by mankind throughout history, have largely defined the products of human endeavor.   It takes a sort of unnatural view like this one to get a sense of how this house looked to the architect using tools of pencil on paper in orthographic projection .
