A mid-century home is not necessarily a traditional brown, beige, and black home with mid-century furniture, and architect John Barthel proved it. The first thing that surprises is a dramatic roofline: a pair of towering geometric, angular folding roofs that protect two twisted living volumes underneath and float effortlessly over the lush grounds. The entry shows that it is a work of art whose wall divider was painted by the architect. The furniture is bright and colorful, in perfect style and in harmony with one another. The main beauty is the art collection, mostly created by the architect and located throughout the house.
