    Default Glass Pavillion, Montecito, California

    Architect Steve Hermann calls this glass-walled home in Montecito, Calif.
    his 'opus.' It features five bedrooms, a kitchen with a wine room that holds
    several thousands of bottles, an art gallery that displays his vintage car
    collection, five and a half bathrooms and measures 13,875 square feet.
    The architect considers this the greatest achievement of his 20-year career.
    The project took 6 years to complete. Aside from the house, Hermann also
    designed some of its furniture.

    Not my style, I'm finding it a hair pretentious. Does the glass at least darken or fog over at night? Being that exposed 24/7 isn't appealing to me at all.

    ^ I don't think so, but it's on 3.5 acres so it's not as though there are really close neighbors. I love the property, but the house itself is not my style either. I can think of a lot of things I would buy with $35 million before this would show up on the list.

    I think it is an awesome place and his views are to die for, but that hall looks more industrial than homey. Wonder who will buy it and when.

    Source is The Wall Street Journal.

    And although it is obviously finished to the highest quality, set in a
    beautiful 3 acres or so, it's way too exposed for me. It didn't say if
    the glass panels fog over or something. Like living in a very expensive
    glass box.

    It looks like the cars are in the house, yes.


    btw, I just googled and found out he has a website for this place, and it's for sale (price upon request):

    This is just beautiful. I can't take my eyes off it. It's very posed, and far more showroom than home, but it's hypnotic. I love all the furniture (except the bubble sofa), and the black/white industrial scheme throughout the house is well balanced by the curving green nature visible in every room. I would also love to have a hall of cars in my home.

    It is hypnotic but creepy as hell at night I'd think... There's the land around, which is good so no passers by look in but when it gets dark my imagination trained by all those years of thrillers and horrors both on screen and on paper would scare the shit out of me.

    I hate the house, but I would kill for 3.5 acres in Montecito!!!

    Bulldoze the house(or sell it off whole or piece by piece, whatever) and build something there worthy of the site.

    And the police would arrest me for walking around naked in my own damn house. No thanks.

    Interesting architecture though.

    The couches look hideous. The rest is ok.

    I love everything except the "glass walls" ... I wouldn't dare have a bath or a shower in front of those huuuuuuuuuuuuuge glass panels, and I'd be shit scared at night.
    Had it been not see through glass it might have been ok, but just plain glass is no, not for me.

    That's a shame because I really like this place (well anyway I do not have 35 million dollars XD)
