Edward Durell Stone, Architect

The Walter H. Johnson Residence, 1954

3 Dogwood Lane, Darien, CT

$1,600,000

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.

Rudolph Schindler, Architect

Bethlehem Baptist Church, 1944

4901 Compton Avenue, Los Angeles, CA

$1,490,000

Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #968. With Rudolph Schindler's complete control of "space, climate, light and mood," he creates a space well-suited for its purpose. Originally designed for a small African-American congregation, nearly everything about the church was unique (including the original color scheme which ranged from warm blue to eggplant, to purplish red). "With no attempt to imitate masonry," Schindler's design achieved a sense of massiveness through the distinctive exterior banding. The horizontal bands of stucco siding which appear to be wood, tie the building to the streetscape. Schindler placed the L-shaped church at the corner, with a

Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect

The Winslow House, 1893

515 Auvergne Place, River Forest, IL

$1,375,000

As Frank Lloyd Wright's first independent commission, the William Winslow House served as a radical change to the traditional styled houses in the Oak Park/Forest River area of Chicago. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970, the Winslow House's imposing facade consists of Roman brick on the first floor and an ornamental frieze wrapping the second floor. The first and second floor elevations of the house are clearly delineated by a central ridge line which adds additional volume to the overall feel of the design. With its broad, hipped roof line, the home predates Wright's Prairie Style vernacular architecture which later dominated many of Wright's

Stephen Guerrant, A.I.A.

The Schweibert Residence, 1980

625 Oak Street, Winnetka, IL

$1,275,000

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.
