A Final Goodbye to the Boulter House - [10:12]
I hope the new owners are as respectful as the outgoing.
I was confident that there are four built Usonians with the sort of upper-level window wall treatment that we see at Boulter, but I've found only two others: the Louis Fredrick residence, also of 1954, and the Donald Lovness house of 1955. Is there another ?
I've also found three unbuilt designs with related framed-in upper window wall glass, for Horace Sturtevant and for Edgar Lee, in 1952, and for Gibbons Cornwell, in 1955. These three differ from the built examples in that the frames are thinner, one broad
board encircling each roughly square pane, rather than two, leaving a larger area of glass at the center of each bay than in the built examples. The Rayward hemicycle was drawn with similar upper-level glazing . . .
