Here we have a rather curious article about a perfect Modernist house in that Modernist hotspot, Dallas.

“I always tell people, if you want to know what the inside of my head looks like, come see my house,” says Justin Crake, who owns the home with Kyle Schmid and Wolfe Kennedy.

Modernism doesn’t make sense for a house anywhere in a city, where such houses have no purpose other than to make the owner look smart. A Modernist residence belongs in the wilderness, where it acts as a lantern whose perfect rectilinear forms stand in contrast to nature. If you’ve got neighbours who can see into your bedroom, your house shouldn’t be Modernist. (I’ve been through this before. And anyone who doubts this philosophy needs to read up on architectural history and consult Nataliya Ilyin.)

Then there’s the accompanying photo (uncredited):

Three guys in T-shirts in house with white walls and colourful floors

At least one All of those T-shirts are Nasty Pig logowear.

Any reasonable rocket scientist would jump to the obvious conclusion, which a chipper and amenable Justin Crake confirmed:

Yup, the three of us are in a relationship together, Kyle (big dark haired guy with beard) and I have been together almost 12 years, and the three of us have been together for almost three years now.

We were really impressed with the article as we though they would totally ignore our relationship and just focus on the house and art, but they suprised us and included all three of us and recoginized our relationship.

And all this is happening in Texas.

Can we be honest here? Isn’t this scenario rather bogglingly hot? Demerit points if you think it’s the house that makes it hot.
