Thanks for sharing this Paul, I was unaware of Gesner's work. The architecture seems to be influenced by Wright by way of Lautner and Goff. Neat stuff.

The quite organic pool area above the entry drive is pleasant, and the "baby" house in the back is a nice echo. There's plenty of this property to go around: the owner could host a party for hundreds and no one would feel crowded.

The roof form seems a direct response to the landform of the site ?
