compare that above building to the below.

like we can look at their prior designs and the hand they take in crafting something that feels light and airy and part of its environment, with an eye towards careful material selection and integration with nature and small details. i dont know how you think a firm that makes designs like this would ultimately wind up making something that would come off as overbearing

you can say what you will but these are very thoughtful, welcoming, sensitive buildings. and i truly believe this building would be approached with the same level of sensitivity, even if it does happen to be tall for its surroundings. at this point i think this couple has earned the benefit of the doubt.
