Kanskje et av de sykeste husene jeg har sett. Båtbyggere måtte til for gjennomføringen i taket. Og se det spisebordet.
In the 1940s, the investor, diplomat and art collector William A.M. Burden and his wife, Margaret Livingston Partridge Burden, commissioned Wallace K. Harrison – the architect who was involved in the design of iconic works like Rockefeller Center, the Museum of Modern Art (of which Mr. Burden was president in the 1950s and ’60s) and the United Nations headquarters – and the artist Isamu Noguchi to design a summer house off the Maine coast. The house, which was completed in 1947, became a 20th-century landmark, literally as well as figuratively – it is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places – as well as a remarkable example, after a devastating fire, of how to restore a Modernist dwelling.
