Description

Once in a lifetime opportunity to be the second owner of this very special light filled four-bedroom, three full and one-half bath architect designed and custom built contemporary on a 2.3 very private wooded GLENVIEW lot. It has been meticulously maintained and loved for 53 years. ''The principal designer of the house was Fred De Santo, then working for the Jasper Ward firm. Fresh from the School of Architecture at the University of Kentucky, De Santo approached his task with a dedication to the examples of Louis Kahn and Charles Moore, and reliance on Le Corbusier's Modular proportions. An extended dialogue between client and architect, an insistence on modernity on the part of both, and an eagerness to match the adventurous spirit of the Leightsto the adventurousness of architecture resulted in a "exploded cube." Few houses could offer more opportunities for natural light to activate works of art. Although it was conceived as a showcase for glass, the generously scaled windows and skylights capture and suffuse natural light in almost every room. Perception of glass changes hour by hour, month by month, so that works of art may have totally different hues in the course of a day and a year. Fred De Santo credits his work as a theater designer for this aspect of the house. (The conversion of a railroad station for Actor Theater's second home was another project in Jasper Ward's atelier-like architectural practice at the time). De Santo points out that one always moves towards light in the Leight house, and that helps to tie spaces together. Designated spaces for art were intended as the punctuation to that flow, and, according to De Santo, shelves throughout the house were intended as much for art display as for books."
