Paying clear homage to Mies van der Rohe’s classic Farnsworth House is the recently completed Glass Pavilion by Steve Hermann. Located in Montecito, California the house not only references the minimal lines of the 1951 classic house, but also incorporates van der Rohe’s  famous use of continuous bookshelf marble feature walls in his other iconic (and my personal favourite) building – the Barcelona Pavilion. One would assume that no expense has been spare with this home – particularly when we noted the serious collection of classic cars on display in the basement.
