Steve Hermann’s Glass PavilionAuthor:Abigail Stone
We all know the saying about people in glass houses, but really, who’d want to throw a retaliatory stone at this beauty?
Created by Los Angeles architectural designer Steve Hermann, the Glass Pavilion sits like a delicate ornament atop three and a half acres in beautiful windswept Montecito. The ample space of the property allows one to feel secure ambling about in the see-through home, where all your daily trappings are clearly visible from outside (yes, including the bedroom and bathroom–though not the actual loo).
Much like yesterday’s magnificent abode, the Glass Pavilion has me thinking of a classic moment in cinematic history: you know, when Cameron killed the car in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”.
Luckily there’s no steep cliff here down which these cars could tumble, but the museum-like look of the place is very reminiscent of Cameron’s parent’s home. How did Ferris describe it?
“It’s very beautiful and very cold, and you’re not allowed to touch anything.”
Perhaps, but I’d still love to spend a day off here.
