Taking away our back-to-work blues this fine afternoon is a stunning modern compound in Taghkanic, NY designed by the New York-based architectural firm. Appropriately named the “Taghkanic House,” Phifer’s award-winning modern construct, which has been listed for $6.75 million, is an elaborate modern mash-up of glass and steel, but one that takes a rather ingenious, subterranean twist.

Leave it to celebrated organic architect Bart Prince to liven up an otherwise dull Tuesday. Newly listed in Santa Fe, NM is one of the Albuquerque-based designer’s more angular constructs, a triangular manifestation known as the Glorieta House.
