Pittsburg Cantilever

This Pittsburg home, recently featured in The New York Times, is a modern take on an old tradition: a business owner living above his shop. When owner Bob Zielinski first showed his idea of a 53 foot long residence cantilevered above his glass factory to contractors, they told him he would have to go the people who build bridges and highways to make it happen, and so he did. After three years of construction, the Zielinski’s now live in an industrial masterpiece that floats above the rest of the city and allows for a very quick commute to the office.
