    Default Glass-and-concrete boxes

    Francisco Osler built this 2,700-square-foot house, comprising two glass-and-concrete boxes, one suspended over the other, in phases over six years, spending $500,000 to date.






    The bed, custom built for about $4,000, was modeled after the Tokyo bed by Piero Lissoni for Porro. Windows on either side of the bed open up to the outdoors.

    Love most of it, but would change a few things, but overall, awesome.

    It is a bit cold, but it could be warmed up without too much trouble. I don't understand the amazingly long skinny kitchen (if I'm even interpreting the photos correctly). Eating dinner next to a big faucet would drive me insane, since I'm super old-fashioned about wanting my dining, cooking, living, sleeping, and bath areas to be distinct.

    I'm pretty sure I completed some Grand Theft Auto missions in and around that very place.
