Glass house by Specht Novak Architects

The homeowners had a unique agenda for what they wanted in their new home. They had been living in an ornate, immaculately decorated 18th century historic mansion on a large 40 acre property in Mansfield, MA. They decided they wanted to make a dramatic post-retirement change by simplifying and downsizing their lives. Embracing a minimalist, modern, aesthetic in their new living space, they hired Specht Novak Architects to design their new modern 2,000 square foot home. Interestingly, they decided to keep and display the priceless art, antiques and found objects collected over the course of their lives. This presented a unique architectural challenge of how to merge these contradictory aesthetics. Photography by Dror Baldinger.
