Charming Miami residence inspired by traditional Florida style with its mid-century open-plan architecture. The house includes 100 feet of uninterrupted glass that covers the length of the front and rear facades, with four sets of sliding glass doors that allow the house to be entirely open when desired. Front and back porches and shuttered doors along the front have been added for privacy and protection against the elements.
The Glass Pavilion house – loosely inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s German Pavilion for the 1929 International Exposition in Barcelona – was designed by Steve Hermann as his own home. Located in Montecito, California and while the 14,000 home may not be exactly MCM the house does have some nice classics – particularly the garage.
