Belgians Create "the Architectural Equivalent of A Mullet"

A post at Fast Company describes the House in the Outskirts of Brussels as business in front and a party in back. (SEE IMAGES).

Belgian architecture firm Samyn and Partners designed a house in Brussels that Suzanne Labarre of Fast Company describes as "two houses in one" and the "architectural equivalent of a mullet."

From Fast Company:

"On one side, you've got exotic foliage sprouting wildly off a curving facade; on the other, a wall of flat, symmetrical windows that could pass for the front of an office building."

"The look serves an actual purpose, shielding the house from prying eyes, without making the place feel like a bunker."
