Help me find this half-remembered house design.

OK, hive mind. Hoping you can help me out here. A while back, say, probably six or seven months ago, I saw a blog post... somewhere... about a cool house design in Europe. I think the design firm was Dutch or Belgian. The blog I saw it on may have been Design Sponge or Building a Wolf, but searching those sites yields no results. Here's what I remember:

  • It was black on the outside, white on the inside
  • One level, with some overhead loft areas
  • At least one outdoor porch area, possibly more
  • It was either pentagonal or hexagonal in shape, but not a regular polygon. More like 5 or 6 traditional A-frame structures stuck together at different angles
  • Lots of light, hence, lots of windows
  • The blog post had a lot of big, hi-res photos
  • I'm certain it was European, because I emailed the firm about plans, but now I can't find the email.
Help me, AskMeFi. You're my only hope.

Hmm, could it have been Allandale House by William O'Brien, Jr?

It very much resembles that, but the one I saw was definitely polygonal in layout from an overhead perspective.

Any chance it was this? It is five "A-frame structures stuck together at different angles," just not in a polygon, per se. But it is European, one level, etc.
