There are a number of color pics at Google Image. Here is William Storrer's info and description of the house; if the project is special, it may be for the reason he gives, namely the choice of material.

I am especially fond of the early exterior view Storrer publishes; the house could be the model for a Plasticville "modern house"...

There is a similarity; though the plans of the houses are different, in both cases the living room is at far left in the views and the kitchen occupies the major masonry block.

And, the masonry is nearly identical in both cases. Two views of Peterson:
