'The Glass House' belongs to the famous architect Philip Johnson and his partner, so it is unsurprising that it was designed to stand out drastically in comparison to other modern homes.

The home is located in an idyllic clearing and surrounded by lush greenery -- a setting that is juxtaposed by the modern design of the Glass House. The rectangular structure is small and completely surrounded by glass, with an interior that is designed with a minimalist aesthetic in mind. The owners enlisted the famous artist Yayoi Kusama, known for her use of dots in her artwork, to create a powerful statement piece for the exterior of the home. The artist placed various sizes of red dots around the entirety of the structure, giving it an unusual, polka-dot pattern.

This creative space is perfectly reflective of the hard work and out-of-the-box thinking of those who own it.
