Philip Rothstein House
G. Milton Small found more inspiration from Ludwig Mies van der Rohe than from Frank Lloyd Wight. Working with a chic, opinionated client who wanted a "clean, crisp house," Small delivered an International Style gem loaded with function and elegance. True to its Miesian roots, the house displays its structure with evident vertical and horizontal planes defining its form. Interior finishes include walnut paneling, providing an organic warmth to contrast with the exposed steel structure. Window walls let nature be a backdrop to modern living. Private residence.
