  • Reinhardt Andersen House (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

Reinhardt Andersen, the son of Ernest Andersen, carried on the Streamline Moderne tradition into the post-World War II years in his own single-story house. Two deepset bands have been carried around the middle of the house in the stucco walls. There are several rounded corners with windows and glass brick; glass brick is employed for the side lights of the entrance door, and of course there are the mandatory metal corner windows.
