    Classic Home 065

    Exterior overview of Classic Home 065, Bogner House by Walter F. Bogner, Architect

    This house in Lincoln, Massachusetts was designed for the architect's family on a site near the Gropius House, the Breuer House II, and the J. Ford House. The house originally accommodated two adults, a daughter, and a maid on a slightly sloping site at the edge of the woods. This house is oriented for views of the open space and woods to the south and west.

    Its construction is a balloon frame on an unusually wide module (39.5") with vertical siding and steel casement windows. One exception is an unusually thick stone wall which intersects the eastern side of the house, defining interior and exterior spaces while simultaneously marking the entry and connecting the house with the landscape. This wall also rises vertically above the main roof and encloses a fireplace at its western end.

    To further connect the house to its context, an unusual curving roof projects to the north covering a garage, carport, and entry walkway with a low stone wall running along the edge. One unusual element is a second-story semi-enclosed garden terrace off the master bedroom.

    In both material selection and space planning, considerable attention was given to economy and multifunctionality. Wallboard and Homosote are the primary interior finish materials. The upstairs sitting room was designed to serve as a guest bedroom. And the maid's bath was also the laundry room. All plumbing elements were placed adjacent to a common interior wall.
