SKIDMORE, OWINGS & MERRIL ARCHITECT ARTHUR WHITTOEFFT, 1957
Exposed steel, white iron speckled glazed brick, floor-to-ceiling glass and all the crisp clarity of The International Style brought together in a compact residence nestled in the woodlands of Westchester County, New York. The single-story house is a taut rectangular volume of 95 feet x 25 feet, nine 10-foot bays plus 2.5-foot cantilevers at each end. The layout is sharply articulated by a matte black exposed steel frame in stark contrast to the white brick infill. Completed by Arthur Witthoefft, SOM architect in 1957, followed by a 2007 rescue and multi-year restoration updated for today’s living, now officially on the State & National Registry of Historic Places.
