The Glass Pavilion, built by Los Angeles architect, designer, developer, realtor, Steve Hermann of Steve Hermann Design, is a breathtaking 14,000 square foot home in Montecito, California–part of Santa Barbara County and one of the the wealthiest communities in the U.S.
Inspired by architectural references like Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion and Farnsworth House, as well as Philip Johnson’s iconic Glass House, Hermann designed The Glass Pavilion in 2010 entirely out of steel and glass, blurring the boundaries between the indoors and out.

In April of 2010, we went on the LA Conservancy’s “Home Sixties Home” architectural tour, and the Franks House was our favorite stop on the tour. Designed by architect Raul Garduno in 1966, the home is located in the hills of Brentwood and truly stands out among the other multimillion dollar homes in the neighborhood.
This 2,506 square foot home features a loft-style arrangement with incredible views, multiple decks, a koi pond, and gorgeous walls of glass. But our favorite feature was the floating staircase! This residence feels like a work of art, but still maintains a warm and homey vibe.
