Abstract

Built in 1970, this consists of a main house and a utility/studio part. The main house is a rectangular block, a little less wide than it is high, and twice as long. If the plan is an "i ," then the dot consists of the squarish plan of the utility/studio part, equally as high as the main house (three-stories) and like it, as if it had been sliced off and moved toward the road . The exterior consists of concrete blocks in uninterrupted panels, and glass in about equal areas. Large wooden louvers cover the glass above the first story. The "container" is as simple as it is bold. The bedrooms are single-story high, in an arrangement of shifting volumes cut into by the hall-and-stairs section. In scale, spatial organization, and materials, the house is an adaptation of the heroic, Corbusian age of Modernism. This is the view from northeast. Title supplied by cataloger. Description supplied by Sape A. Zylstra.
