    General Assessment:
    An early experiment in two-family housing with live/work space for each adult. Rooms open to private terraces and gardens for integrated indoor/outdoor living. Experimental tilt-up concrete construction, outdoor fireplaces, sliding doors of canvas and glass, custom furnishings, open-air sleeping porches and free flow of space create the quintessential California house.
