The Farnsworth House, by Mies van der Rohe, was built with the intention of allowing the patron to engage fully with her hobbies on this secluded plot of of land.  In an interview about the house, Mies stated:

“Nature, too, shall live its own life. We must beware not to disrupt it with the color of our houses and interior fittings. Yet we should attempt to bring nature, houses, and human beings together into a higher unity.”
