General Assessment:
The three-story, steel-framed structure is a pioneering example of modern technology applied to the creation of a residential environment. Walls spanning between the shop-fabricated, lightweight frame are sprayed concrete over an insulation backing and combinations of standard window units. Through its dramatic hillside site and exposed structural system, the house is a recognized monument to the International Style.
