A Glass Townhouse in Barcelona

The NY Times has a slideshow of interior photos of the six-story glass townhouse architect Luis Alonso designed for himself in Barcelona. For some reason they don't have an exterior picture, but I found one at the web site of Alonso's firm (below). I like it when architects design houses for themselves, since they have to live with the results. Alonso has certainly taken a bold approach. Among the unusual features in the house are the glass floors, which would give me vertigo but please his wife: “We each have privacy, but also a feeling of unity and harmony in the house. We are sometimes far from each other but not out of sight.”
