    CLASSIC HOME 074

    This four-bedroom, two-bathroom house in Mill Valley, California was built for a young family and sited beside a goat pasture.

    The house is composed of a single long wing capped by a clerestory over the open great room and kitchen. Entry and secondary service spaces are found at either end of this wing. Along one side of this open space is a wall composed entirely of built-in bookshelves, which separates the public and private areas of the house. — Published 2007.0509

    CLASSIC HOME 072

    This modest one-bedroom, two-bathroom desert cottage was designed for a single person. The plan is based on a grid of four-foot (1.2-meter) parallelograms which are, in turn, contained within a large triangular arrangement of rubblestone walls. A large central stone column rises through the two floors, enclosing fireplaces, chimney, and bathrooms. — Published 2007.0307

    CLASSIC HOME 071

    This four-bedroom, two-bathroom coastal house near Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada sits alongside a small cove, less than 10 feet (3 meters) from the shore. Measuring 12 x 110 feet (3.7 x 33.5 meters) and finished in corrugated metal siding, this house has been mistaken for one of the many boatsheds that dot the local coastline.

    CLASSIC HOME 070

    This five-bedroom, five-bathroom vacation house in Palm Springs, California was designed to emphasize connection to the desert landscape while offering shelter from harsh climatic conditions. Large sliding glass walls open the living spaces and master bedroom to adjacent patios. Major outdoor rooms are enclosed by a row of movable vertical fins that offer flexible protection against sandstorms and intense heat.

    A combined living and dining space, roughly square, lies at the center of the house. While the house favors an east-west axis, four long perpendicular wings extend in each cardinal direction from the living areas. Thoughtful placement of larger rooms at the end of each wing helps define adjacent outdoor rooms, with circulation occurring both indoors and out.

    The south wing connects to the public realm and includes a carport and two long covered walkways. These walkways are separated by a massive stone wall and lead to public and service entries, respectively. The east wing of the house is connected to the living space by a north-facing internal gallery and houses a master bedroom suite. To the west, a kitchen, service spaces, and staff quarters are reached by a covered breezeway. In the northern wing, another open walkway passes along an exterior patio, leading to two guest rooms. — Published 2006.1213

    CLASSIC HOME 069

    This one-bedroom, one-bathroom house in Osaka, Japan was built on a very narrow lot in a core urban rowhouse neighborhood. Its unassuming and slightly austere concrete form belies a poetically composed interior, emphasizing functionality and privacy.

    Measuring a mere 10.5 feet (3.2 meters) wide and 42 feet (12.8 meters) long, this house provides about 700 square feet (65 square meters) of living space on a 615-square-foot (57-square-meter) lot. — Published 2006.1129

    CLASSIC HOME 068

    This house in the foothills near Tucson, Arizona was designed for the region's harsh weather extremes, including severe daily temperature swings and long dry periods interrupted by torrential rains. A long circulation spine separates the two long parallel wings of the house. The larger wing contains a master bedroom suite at one end and a large, open common kitchen, dining, and living space at the other, with an enclosed utility room between. A guest bedroom and large covered patio make up the second, smaller wing. — Published 2006.1025

    CLASSIC HOME 067

    Also known as Case Study House No. 8, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom house in Pacific Palisades, California served as both residence and studio for Charles and Ray Eames. The house sits at the edge of a clearing, partially set into a hillside to minimize site disturbance. — Published 2006.0927

    CLASSIC HOME 066

    This house on Bruny Island near Tasmania, Australia was designed as a vacation house on a secluded coastal site, with views back toward Tasmania. The two long wings of the house are separated by a central corridor which serves as a buffer between the bedrooms to the south and the active areas in the larger northern wing.

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. — Published 2006.0802
