Matsumoto House

George Matsumoto built this dwelling for himself, pioneering the use of modular building materials in an attempt to control costs. The proportions, detailing, and materials are exceptional, and the house makes a less-than-ideal building site a benefit by artfully accommodating a sloped grade and stream with a bridge from the street to the entrance. Architectural magazines of the period featured the house. Private residence.
