Drawer microwaves have become very popular recently, apparently Moms like the fact that kids can easily access them.As someone who is only 5' 8'' that microwave placement actually looks fine to me and better than on the counter or under the cabinets. But for anyone taller I could see how it could be annoying.
FL, this might be sooner than later. I noticed that they have demo'd the sales office at the end of the pier and seem to have begun landscaping work around the site. Hope springs eternal.I don't really love this, but I'm waiting to see what the Harborwalk extension looks like
I think it looks better in reference to the buildings around it, which are cropped out of that shot. Remember - everything around this is blue glass. This building serves as a nice contrast, if nothing else.
I agree. I've always liked the torqued and slightly sinuous form. Passing resemblance to the Krakow hotel aside, there are elements of this building that call to mind more contemporary work from Snøhetta, BIG, and Mecanoo.This building serves as a nice contrast, if nothing else.
And as a corollary, it kind of looks like the New Balance cruise ship building.Honestly, I had shown a picture of this to my Watertown resident relative, and her response might have been the look they were going for that I had never thought of - "It looks like a cruise ship!"
No, that was always pretty obvious. Interestingly, it also strongly resembles the new Residence Inn under construction in Roxbury.^ It is just dawning on people that this Pier 4 building looks a bit like a cruise ship? What could ever possibly inspire the architect for that look?
