Infill housing on front lawns?

One of the challenges in adjudicating the submissions to the prefab 20*20 housing competition was the fact that some of the ideas were very practical, while others were more conceptual and provocative. In this regard, one of my personal favourites was a proposal to site modular housing on the front lawns of Westside Vancouver single family homes. Now the proponent realized this might upset some of the neighbours so they came up with an ingenious idea...

they disguised the housing to look like a well trimmed hedge! Congratulations to Alyssa Schwann and Sean Pearson and the Rural Urban Fantasy Project from Salt Spring Island, Canada.
