A view of one of the boys’ bedroom shows how the furniture was built into the wall and the relationship of walls to the floor, making clear, as Guyon has described, that this is really “an experiment masquerading as a house.” As is indicative of a pure Modernist home, all glass is fixed, with separate screened compartments for ventilation. Circulation and places of repose are also separated. As one can see at the right of the frame, the box is denied, the cube explodes, things come apart and nothing directly touches. “Its not egalitarian, its completely elite. Though many find it to be bare bones, its just really intense in its craft,” says Guyon.  Photo 9 of 10 in Modern in Lexington, Kentucky
