Shaffer Residence: the house from A Single Man

I don't know why it took me so long to see the amazing Tom Ford's film A Single Man (novel by Christopher Isherwood), but when I did, it was the house that took my breath way (who cares that it's being sold for $1.5M, I want it) and that it was complete metaphore for the film. This amazing home features so little by today's standards, but it's really about what you have and how you use it. It's built from redwood, concrete and glass and is invisible.
