Haus Schwatz: Cati's DC Real Estate

The Sky Is The Limit

It was an accident, but I just love it!  I went around an upcoming new listing today, a very cool mid-century "California Modern," and snapped a few casual pictures with my little old Lumix.  They were by no means for publication but just to help my memory as I'm starting to put together some info and description for the brochures. 

This one was taken from the outside, through a wall-to-ceiling window.  Because of the reflection, I couldn't really see the picture until I downloaded it.  And guess what -- the floating ceiling had softly taken off!

One of the revolutionary and enduring principles of 20th century modern architecture is the idea to integrate indoor living space with the surrounding outdoors.  I don't think that concept could be illustrated any better than this!
