It’s amazing to think that this place was built between 1949 and 1950. If it was built today it would turn heads We can only wonder what the reaction was 60+ years back!

The man who commissioned it was artist Adolph Tischler, who also put his own mark on the place, designing that wonderful metal fireplace and the built-in furniture.

It’s a three-storey property complete with a ‘blue translucent, sky-like roof’ that apparently resembles an ‘upside-down glass-bottomed boat.’ The glass above the kitchen and master bedroom also ‘appear to make the house transparent throughout’.  So in other words, if the outside doesn’t knock you sideways, the interior just might.
