With its unique design and steel-aluminum-glass construction, Schwartz/Silver Architects’ Tanglewood House is a work of art. The home belongs to Warren Schwartz and his violinist wife, and serves as a home away from home during the months she spends performing with the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
The three-bedroom rectangular home is “framed as a steel truss” and a “concrete basement anchors the building and supports the daring 45-foot cantilever.” According to the building diagrams, the bedrooms and living space are stretched linearly along the main living floor, each level separated by a set of six stairs. The great room, which juts out at the front of the structure, is all glass, providing unparalleled views of the Berkshire Mountains. Photography by Alan Karchmer
