The 'Glass Pavilion'

Post by Snaz on Sun Aug 22, 2010 6:28 pm

You have to take a look at this house built with glass walls...... pictures numbered 3 (living area) and 4 (dining room) are completely amazing....

However, I am not so sure how happy I would be to have see-through walls on my bedroom and bathroom. I don't care HOW secluded it is.... Very Happy

In case any of you are interested in purchasing this house, it is on the market, listed for a mere $35M.....

Known for his modern designs, Los Angeles- based architect Steve Hermann finished his latest project in Montecito, Calif., about four months ago.

Mr. Hermann considers the home, called the Glass Pavilion, his “opus.”

When he builds in the Hollywood Hills or Beverly Hills, Mr. Herman says he is usually restricted to a small lot.

This lot measures about three-and-a-half acres and gave him the space he needed to create a home featuring walls of glass.

Snaz-I agree about the house. I wouldn't want the bedroom or bathroom to be glass walls. The rest is beautiful though.

I loved the youtube!!!

You'd need a full time housekeeper just for washing windows! I agree, bed and bath need privacy. I don't know how comfortable I'd feel being exposed like that 24/7. With the woods you'd never really know who was watching you or your family.

Of course, those big rooms are perfect for my "loud" voice!
