Monte T. Hall House

-A A +A
c. 1966. 910 E. Corpus Christi St.

Not to be outdone by the adjoining Joseph S. and Henry W. Hall houses, the Monte T. Hall House is a one-story modern pavilion with a pair of low-pitched pyramid roofs riding atop a flat extended roof plate. This plate shields clerestory strip windows above brick wall planes laid up in a stack bond, which frame a central alcove and an entrance canopy that projects forward from it. The design was derived from the American Home of the Immediate Future, a modular, factory-finished demonstration house built at the Century 21 Exposition of 1962 in Seattle and designed by New York City architect Robert M. Engelbrecht for the U.S. Plywood Corporation.
