Mid-Century Modern :: Robert E. Bond, Architect

[id# 314]

Crosby Doe Associates

Remarks: Robert E. Bond's Progressive, Forward-Thinking Design Exemplifies The Mid-Century Modern Aesthetic Of Breaking Free From Traditional, Conservative Architecture That Dominated The American Landscape Prior To WWII. Sited in the hills, Bond's Abundant Use Of Glass Walls Minimizes The Physical Separation Between The Interior And Out Of Doors. Bond's Use Of Vertical Overlapping Board And Batten Planks Add Volume To The High, Angled Roofline Which Seamlessly Blends Into The Hillside. Functional Extensions Of The Vertical And Horizontal Lines Of The House - Such As Railings And The Balcony Off Of The Master Bedroom - Are Incorporated With The Overall Design, Subsequently Creating A Unifying Relationship Between The House, Owner And Environment.
