  • Edward Lind Morse Studio (Franz Jantzen)

Hornblower and Marshall's Arts and Crafts style studio house for the artist Edward Lind Morse represents a fundamentally modern attitude about the relationship between facades and streets. It is intensely private and introverted, with only three relatively small windows and a solid oak door fortified by handcrafted metal hinges facing the street. Brown brick walls upon which the abstract composition of windows and door seem to float is terminated in a stepped gable, the whole an uncommonly sophisticated architectural statement made with a minimum of elements.
