Bayer House

-A A +A
1950. 240 Lake Ave.

In the best tradition of the Modern Movement, this low, cinderblock house, now stuccoed, is simple and clean—two unadorned rectangular wings framing an interior courtyard. Closed to the street but open to the views beyond, it demonstrates the affinities between Modernism and traditional Japanese architecture.
