Groves House

-A A +A
1938, Eugene G. Groves. 330 Birch St.

Moderne takes an interesting twist in this reinforced concrete house of a leading International Style architect. The vaulted living room is clearly articulated outside in an elongated cement dome. South of the dome is a roof terrace with a concrete balustrade reached by an exterior stairway. Corners are rounded, and the design also borrows Pueblo Revival massing and detailing in the flat roofs and low parapets. Even details ranging from window mullions to kitchen cabinets are concrete.
