Beautiful house! The furniture (Finn Juhl, Charlotte Perriand, Bruno Matthson, etc.) crafts, and art collection pairs nicely with the house. It's so rare to see owners with such refined taste who truly understand how objects can interact with and enhance these spaces.

It is interesting to read this article, and see how people make comments without any factual support.

The house was build around 1962 to 1965. It is far from being Jones' first residential design, as the article states. The house was not "experimental". It appears to be a normal residential design. I believe Jones experimented on all his designs, but this house is not "unique" in that aspect. This house also is far from being his "most carefully detailed". I can think of many of his designs which are far more detailed. But I am sure Jones was careful in all of this details and designs.

Of course, yes, the house is amazing!

Yes, hyperbole is the name of the game in this kind of journalism. Yet the article is otherwise well written and presents useful information. It's nice to see one we haven't looked at before. There's some nice glazing patterns here, among other things. Mr Jones certainly liked to decorate his ceilings . . !
