Edward Durell Stone, Architect
The Walter H. Johnson Residence, 1954
3 Dogwood Lane, Darien, CT
Departing from the Modernist institutional designs that brought Edward Durell Stone international acclaim, the Johnson residence, with it's wood and glass façade and A-frame design, is no less significant than his large-scale public commissions. Stone’s organic blend of glass and wood is a welcome surprise to anyone entering the long, unremarkable driveway off of a cul-de-sac. Located in Darien, Connecticut, the open floor plan of Stone's two-story design adds additional volume to the 2,300 square-foot, four bedroom, two bath residence. Stone's generous use of glass on both levels of the house rarely allows its inhabitants to be disconnected from the 1.1 acre parcel the

Stephen Guerrant, A.I.A.
The Schweibert Residence, 1980
625 Oak Street, Winnetka, IL
With his modern interpretation of a New England saltbox, Stephen Guerrant's 1980 design of the Schweibert Residence introduces a post-modern aesthetic to an older, established neighborhood of period piece homes. While the design is indeed progressive, the symmetry of broad, low-slung roofline and careful placement of shingles blends in mellifluously with its Tudor and Colonial Revival neighbors. Guerrant's forward-thinking inclusion of geometric shapes predates the post-modern designs which came to dominate American landscape in the ensuing decades, thus establishing the Schweibert's home as a forerunner of the next chapter in vernacular architecture in the United States.
James Delong, Architect
The Nowling Residence, 1962
540 Reposado Drive, La Habra Heights, CA
Arguably, Frank Lloyd Wright's early work was the genesis of California's celebrated open plan modern living. Apprentice and Taliesin Fellow James De Long embraces the tradition at the Nowling Residence. The entertainment living spaces are carefully defined by fine cabinetry and built-ins, but flow one to the other, and outdoors to the pool and gardens which are set in an old avocado grove. The home is sited for both privacy, and to afford panoramic views across the City to the Ocean. The beauty of the design is not just for show: wide eaves protect the interiors from the summer sun while allowing the low winter sun to warm the interiors. The master bedroom suite commands the
