Better Homes & Garden Idea Home 1955, Hugh Stubbins

Postby Joe » Tue Apr 28, 2009 9:35 am

designed by east coast Modernist Hugh Stubbins. Any other Stubbin design homes out there?

I have a fine example of this house just up the street. A BH&G '57 house by Wurster, Bernardi, and Emmons is couple blocks over.

JOE STOP! Your altering our house in Photoshop doesn't fool me one bit, you're spying on us; I'm reporting you to the authorities!
Um, that's really close to our house, the layout is identical except for the placement of doors, closets, etc. Our house in 1,100 SF, wow, that's spooky!
Cool,
Slim

Stubbins is from Birmingham, AL. A home he designed here was on the market last year. I didn;t keep any of the photos at the time, though. Food for thought for self next time . . .

Nice house!

Here's a couple of other Stubbins's houses designed for a small house design competition in Georgia in 1946.

I photographed the St. Louis version about a month ago.

STL, Do you remember the street. It was near the place we ate breakfast.

estate sale...

Postby alexforum » Thu Oct 22, 2009 12:13 am

I just remembered this thread, when I saw this listing on Craigslist. -Man, I can't believe I spend time finding estate sales in Denver when I'm based in Sweden...

Did anyone else notice that the "Realistic House for Georgia" architectural rendering above has a swamp buggy in the carport?
Where are we going & what are we doing in this handbasket?
