1952, Victor Hornbein. 33 E. Bayaud Ave. (northwest corner of S. Lincoln St.)

Looking like a Wrightian residence, this horizontal structure of red brick has a concrete base and sills. A flat, projecting roof suspended from steel I-beam rafters shades the clerestory window bands. Corner windows descend from clerestories to frame solid brick wall panels. Golden oak trim inside and out frames glass panels with a whimsical arrangement of colored glass rectangles suggesting a Piet Mondrian painting.
