Harwell Hamilton and Jean Bangs Harris House and Office

Harwell Hamilton Harris, an internationally known Modernist architect, designed this flat-roofed, stucco-clad house to include living quarters for himself and his wife, a studio for his architectural practice, and a rental apartment. Harris is known for his use of modular design with well-integrated works that express a unified rhythm along their components. A sheltered wood lamppost with a large glass-globe lightshade marking the entrance walk at the left edge of the building façade is a Harris icon.

Date: 1968-1970; 1977
