Architect Builds Modern GLASS HOME (Jul, 1936)
This house is just incredibly cool. I wonder if it is still standing. What’s really amazing about the design is that it still looks quite modern. I don’t think that a 40″ Plasma screen would look at all out of place in that living room.
Architect Builds Modern GLASS HOME
THE open spaciousness of a country manor, captured in a 5-story house but 19 feet wide and set in the heart of crowded New York City is the latest architectural miracle to be wrought by the use of glass blocks.
From the outside the narrow structure, designed and built by Morris B. Sanders, architect, is impressively beautiful. Inside all idea of confinement is lost. Through a clever method of arranging the furniture close to the wall an illusion of space is created which is further heightened by the perspective-destroying glass walls. The rooms seem to extend indefinitely.
Recessed shelves, bookcases, and cupboards add to the roominess of the interior. In many cases metal furniture was used.
