Really ? Any particular building ?

It's classic Lautner, anyway: take a simple geometric idea, one that makes sense married to a particular structural scheme, and let it play, unmolested by extraneous second thoughts or other distractions.

Speaking of structure, isn't there something missing from that section drawing: what supports the 3" plank floor, between walls ?

And, I'm surprised to see a savvy builder specify lapped siding for a cylindrical wall. Boards will bend, but they aren't easily persuaded to take a compound or conical form...

There is a house in Berkeley
And one on Stinson Beach
That remind me of this.
I’ll try to find them

Ah---well done. I think of Saitowitz as straight-line work; here's an exception. And it reflects the Foster design in more than one respect---with a (literal) twist.

Here is the house in Berkeley:

These Saitowitz houses compare to this Lautner house
in a kind of simplcity of plan and resourcefulness of means.
