Well it seems Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice have something in common after all. Complex.com released it’s pick for the 10 Ugliest McMansions in all of New Jersey and the feuding sisters-in-law made the list. The Gorga McMansion came it at number ten. The home that is currently on the market for 3.8 million dollars was described as follows:
“The individual parts of the house: the archways, the mouldings, and the windows, all seem like they are meant to be spread out on a house that is larger than this already oversized home. Again Mansart, creator of iconic French architectural elements, would cringe at the integration of his style into this house. The hints of scrollwork in the windows and on the chimney give the design of this house almost a fantastical feel, but I doubt there will be a happy ending to this architectural fairytale.”
OUCH! Click through to see what they said about Teresa’s McMansion!
Not one to allow her sister-in law to out do her, Teresa and Joe Giudice’s McMansion comes in at number nine, so she um, “won” in the ugliest house contest at least. Complex.com describes Teresa’s home by comparing it to Wal*Mart. Double OUCH!
The beauty of this house lies in comparing the front elevation with the aerial shot of the house. It makes me think of what Venturi calls a “decorated shed”, when huge, mass produced megamarts slap a sign on their huge warehouse box of a store. I don’t see much difference between how Walmart decorates its square stores with its logo and this box decorated with “sophistocated” (sic), “French” finishings.
More affirmation for the belief that these two are two peas in a pod. Then again, if you can’t spell sophisticated perhaps you should not be passing judgment. Thoughts?
