Starts with two John Lloyd Wright houses:

"His college mentor was Frank Lloyd Wright and he published a book of 30 Contemporary Houses he designed from 1955-1968."

It would be something, to find a copy of Cooler's book !

Nice to see the restovation completed. I sure wish I had floor plans of this house; the cranked relationship of the two wings apparently results in the angled position of the fireplace and chimney mass within the larger volume.

The terrazzo floors and floating stair treads are original ?

I assume the railing for the balcony was dictated by code, but the original use of planters was superior.
