Steve Hermann, the Los Angeles-based architect known for his modern designs, finished what he dubbed as his "opus" about four months ago.

Much of the architect’s projects are built on a rather small lot in the Hollywood Hills or Beverly Hills, but his latest project spreads 13,875 square feet on , land. These acres of space gave him the liberty to design a home surrounded with glass walls.

Hermann calls this glass-covered home the “”, a nice, dainty structure in a field of greens. The architect says of it: “Here I have complete privacy. It allows you to be one with nature inside the house.”

The “Glass Pavilion” houses five bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, a wine room in the kitchen and a vintage car art gallery that showcases his collection. He built this originally for himself, but the plans have changed since the six-year project have gone construction. One of these changes is the arrival of his 10-month old daughter.

He is leaving his dream home to rent another for awhile. Meantime, his is now listed for $35 million, and the furnishings are negotiable. Sotheby’s International Realty’s Suzanne Perkins has the listing.
