Modern luxury glass walled home

Set within a 3.5 acre estate of oak groves in Montecito, California, lays a home almost entirely of glass. It allows the occupants to be comfortably inside while completely enveloped within nature. Built by Steve Hermann, this 13,875 square foot home called The Glass Pavilion is a redefining structure within modernism. Through the use of massive structural beams, the home is able to appear weightless as it hovers above an expansive lawn. No expense has been spared during the six years that it took to complete. The house boasts 5 bedrooms, 5-1/2 baths, a kitchen with a wine room attached, capable of holding several thousand bottles and a walnut covered art gallery big enough to prominently display 32 cars. All of the large glass panels are Star Fire glass, an incredibly clear glass usually reserved for jewelry displays. No expense has been spared during the six years that it took to complete.

It is amazing. The lines, the transparency, the topography, the freedom, all it can give is philosophical to me. Forget privacy. Privacy is an excuse to those who mostly have some thing to hide in other areas of their life. This is called freedom made possible using void as initial resource. Where is it actually found in Montecito?
