montecito-custom-home-0310-x (1)

Mountain Views

Each floor of this Santa Monica home offers a great view. Open up the master bedroom’s awning windows or slide open the ground-floor doors for even more exposure.

Designed by Richard Neutra, one of America’s foremost modern architects, this duplex in San Francisco glows from its floor-to-ceiling steel-framed windows.

warehouse-home-l

Elegant Warehouse
Although it looks like this house has no walls or windows, it’s due to the garage-like doors of glass and steel that can be rolled up to embrace the outdoors. A band of clerestory windows runs along the northern, neighbor-facing side of the house to provide privacy.
