It's the absolutely stunning home of Nikos Buxeda-Ferrer and Inés Rosas in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I never knew it until yesterday, but San Juan abuts a protected rain forest. The elegant Buxeda-Ferrer and Rosas home overlooks this protected forest and is still ten minutes from San Juan's downtown. It sounds idyllic frankly and you can read more about it is yesterday's Times.
Here are some highlights.

I think it would be safe to say that this is a modern home. It's also one I'm drawn to like a moth to a flame. I cannot get enough of those clean lines and enticing sight lines. I get it that modernism isn't for everybody, but it sure speaks to me.
Don't let the fact that I love it dissuade you from critiquing it though. I'm curious to hear from people for whom this doesn't sing. Of course anybody's allowed to praise it too, but what is it about modernism that just rubs people the wrong way?
