This is the Richard O. Spencer house. He was an industrial designer who dabbled in architecture. I believe this house is in Modernism Rediscovered. Another house he designed is on the cover.

This house is one of my favorite. Sad to say, it had some later very BAD additions.

Great video of the house.

Luther-
Thanks for the address and additional pictures!

The additions are really awful.
