Ghost House is a part of House of 33 Years, designed as an homage to Philip Johnson and his Ghost House in the Glass House: our Ghost House is given the same name and same proportion as the folly that stands in Philip Johnson’s house which was originally built as an homage to Frank Gehry in 1984.

Ghost House now stands in the space between the two roofs of House of 33 Years: on the top of the roof above its living space and below the steel grand roof.
