This unusual house is located in the midst of woodland giving it a very safe and cosy feeling. This is a very important factor due to the openness of the house itself. With most of the walls being glass, it is very easy to see in and to see out, so the location has helped keep the house slightly more private. The house was designed by Boston architectural firm, Flavin Architects who wanted to create an open space that allowed the inside to merge with the outside. The main seating area has aluminium sliding doors which can open up to nearly the whole width of the walls, allowing air to flood through. The roof also has a grass patch to help with sustainability and also to help the modern building blend into its surroundings.
