This mid century architecture by Jean Fombertaux is a masterpiece in construction. The interior labyrinth is void of walls and makes for visual planes defining living spaces. Jean Fombertaux built this home for himself and has remained in the family until now. The home almost has a tree house feeling with all of the different living levels being open. The house nestled amongst all of those trees helps as well. The house was built in 1966 and was one of the first in the country with an expressed steel frame. Its cubed form of lines, flat panels of pre-cast concrete alternating with large glazed sections, takes cues from the minimal Modernists of Europe dovetailing.
