Midcentury House # 4 Architect: Mark A. Larson
5506 Riverside Drive
This former ranch-style house retains some of its original 1950s features but has essentially been redefined. The original garage has been retained and incorporated into a new facade and frontal elevation. The house has two slanted roofs which are coupled with an generous Frank Lloyd Wright style roofline on the two story portion of the house. Copper, brick, wood and glass create an interesting mix of materials. The front door glass entry is replicated above on the second story, giving the illusion of an enormous clerestory single window. This feature is echoed in the protruding glass cubes which anchor the planes of the house on the far right of the structure.
