In 1957 Hungary born Bauhaus architect Marcel Breuer designed this Boston modern home. Embracing the principles from the Bauhaus school, Breuer incorporates a white and natural stone exterior, glass walls, an open floor plan and built-in bookcases into this work of art. This Boston contemporary home, located on a serene 2 acre site, has beautiful views throughout the interior such as a koi pond from the master bedroom or the pastoral views of Andover from the living areas. This modern home in Boston is a perfect example of the ideas originated by the Bauhaus school of which Marcel Breuer was a leading contributor as a student and teacher before he arrived in the United States to join Walter Gropius’s architecture practice and teach at Harvard in 1937. He is also known for the Wassily chair he designed originally for artist, Wassily Kandinsky.
