In the Yokouchi Residence, Tokyo-based architects Kidosaki Architects Studio have produced a delightful fusion of traditional Japanese and modernist home architecture.
Casa Caúcaso is the striking, well-poised family home of architect José Juan Rivera Río. Located in Mexico City, it was made using regionally-sourced concrete, wood, marble, and glass.
This home’s interior design is so fresh that it feels like it could easily have been built in the past few years. It was in fact completed in the 1950s by celebrated Portland-based architect Saul Zaik.
To say that the Casa Boaçava celebrates the right angle would be to state the obvious. Indeed, in this São Paulo-located house, completed in 2011, cubes and cuboids abound in different iterations throughout the structure.
Frank Lloyd Wright built the Millard House (La Miniatura) in Pasadena, California, after experiencing the use of concrete with the Unity temple in Illinois. But he was dissatisfied with it as a construction material. Frank …
The newly built Glencoe Residence, designed by architect Mason Miller, successfully joins the contemporary living needs of the clients with a modernist aesthetic.
This house is a lovely period piece. Built in 1950, it looks right out of the original Eichler playbook.
And yet, being as its location is Portland, Oregon it couldn’t possibly be.
Case Study architect Kemper Nomland Jr. designed this house in the early 1950s.
Located in Altadena, California, it still captures the spirit of the Case Study era…
It’s difficult to imagine the ideal mid-century home without a gorgeous pool.

Frank Lloyd Wright Houses
The Hollyhock House is architect Frank Lloyd Wright in full monumental mode. This is perhaps no surprise given it was his first project in Los Angeles. East Hollywood no less.
The Penfield House was built for the painter Louis Penfield. Penfield was a tall man, fortunate for him the architect who built the house in 1955, Frank Lloyd Wright, had his so-called Usonian homes built according to the specific needs of the user.
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Norman Lykes House is an excellent example of the architect’s technical prowess. Situated in Phoenix, Arizona, it was designed by the architect in 1959 for Norman and Aimee Lykes.
Considering the persistent appeal of Robert Eichler’s original homes, it’s no surprise that many have undergone renovations to bring them into the new century.
This original mid-century Eichler house in San Carlos, California, benefits from a host of bright ideas. Following decades in which its reclusive former owner shuttered off the house to the outdoors, its subsequent owners spied a potential gem.
This classic Eichler house looks like it was built last year. Renovated by Klopf Architecture, in partnership with Growsgreen Landscape Design, Flegel’s Construction, and the owners themselves, the space is filled with contemporary fixtures and fittings while demonstrating the same ethos of the original mid-century period.
For an original Eichler this home looks remarkably new, and remarkably unique. Property of Usha and Mike Kreaden and situated in Sunnyvale, California, it was completed in 1958. It could have just as easily been built last year.
