What Houzz contributors are saying:

Compared to the first Geller house, the facades of the concrete house are much more expressive. In a story that Zaleski recounts, Geller asked Breuer for advice on hanging a painting in the living room of the first house, to which the architect responded by commissioning Jackson Pollock to create a painting for a custom wall divider. In that house, art was separate but integrated into it via design. In the second house, the architecture is the work of art, its facade recalling a Mondrian painting framing views of the Atlantic beyond.
