The fourth stop on the MAK Architecture tour was Ellwood’s Moore House – my favorite on the tour that was not called the How House. The walk up from Bonvue Avenue to the house is like walking into another world. Before you see the house you see one of many outdoor seating areas – a hint of what’s to come.
Hidden amongst trees and plants lies the house: a three-bedroom, two-bathroom structure enclosed by glass windows. The living room features through views from the entry to the backyard and surrounding rustic setting. Basically the house is one big glass rectangle. In a word: amazing.
Take a look at the living to get an idea of just how this modern masterpiece is laid out:
