When the architect had to design this house in a wooden area -his own home- he chose for a particular rigours style.
Like most of the mid century modern houses, also this one was designed to make blurry the limit between inside and outside. The rectangular and single-level architecture together with the floor to ceiling windows used as external walls, provide views of the wood from most of the rooms.
Certainly the International Style from Europe -that so much influenced mid century residential designs in America- also had an impact on the stylistic choices made for the Jones Residence, including its rigorous and carefully chosen interiors.
