    Modern home playfully and precisely designed

    Designed by an MIT architect, Maurice Smith, for an MIT professor, this contemporary home seems both a gleeful jumble of box-shaped rooms and a sober exercise in precise geometric design. Its dark brown fir siding blends into the bucolic setting of its 1.8-acre lot. For building materials, Smith used a variety of woods - ceilings are knotty pine; walls are fir; and the kitchen countertops and cabinets are oak.

    Exposed red bricks and flooring tiles are from Dennis Ruabon, a Welsh clay quarry.
