Architect Jorg Helssen liked a challenge. The rocky, waterfront site he chose to build his home needed a generator, propane for heating and refrigeration, and its own water supply, and in exchange it rewarded his family with spectacular views. Liz Bryan toured this striking, wood-heavy home in 1976, and we’re going back for another look (although submarine-style, circular windows probably aren’t trending again any time soon).
