    Exterior Overview of Classic Home 053, Breuer House I, by Marcel Breuer, Architect.

    This house in Lincoln, Massachusetts, built by the architect for his own family, is on a site that is level in front and slopes down in the back. The house is wood frame, with steel sash casement windows and vertical tongue-and-groove redwood exterior siding, without gutters or conductors. A stone-floored entry leads to a two-story, south-facing living room. From there, stairs lead down to the dining room and up to the bedrooms. The interior walls and ceilings are plywood panels and 1/4 sawed fir. A stone-floored, screened-in porch faces west.

    From Classic Modern Homes of the Thirties, by James Ford and Katherine Morrow Ford, originally published as "The Modern House in America," copyright 1940. The 1989 edition is published by Dover Publications, ISBN 0-486-25927-7.
