Neighbors in a historic district are protesting a nearly completed modernist home that the historic commission approved, then a city board rejected. A judge may order the home torn down. What do you think?

There may not be enough information in the question. At what point in the process did the city board reject the modernist home? Before permits were issued? After construction was started? The real answer would be predicated on the timeline and which organization has regulatory authority and which has advisory authority.

Mark, it was very late in the process. Permits were issued, most of the construction was accomplished.

Considering that the Raleigh Historic Development Commission says the following about the character of Oakwood: "Thus Oakwood, which contains Raleigh's only intact 19th century neighborhood, is also a surprisingly diverse neighborhood of long-term change. Its evolution is painted across a broad canvas, diversity borne of architectural and topographical variety, bound into a cohesive whole through repetition of detail and style, and a consistently intimate rhythm established along continuous streetscapes of tree-sheltered sidewalks" I think the house should stay. It's not *THAT* far off of some of the other designs there...perhaps a slightly different finish than the beech wood look (maybe a brick facade and some different paint?) would help it fit in a bit better. It's not like they shoe-horned a modern "monster house" in there...the design appears relatively reflective of some of the other designs in the area, admittedly with a bit of a contemporary flair.
