Gladwyne, PA

BAUHAUS IN MILL VALLEY was designed in the 1930s by a Philadelphia architect noted for his exuberant reproductions of Pennsylvania stone farm houses. In strange contrast, this house with its flat roofs, horizontal bandings and sculpted corners seems lifted out of the work of the Bauhaus International School in vogue at the time in Europe.

We doubled the size of the house with garages, family room, bedrooms and baths. We designed the new work to tie in and blend with the original so that it is quite hard to distinguish between the two. The additions are perched on the edge of a steep, wide ravine giving us the opportunity to arrange the new rooms for exposure to the views and sunlight the natural site afforded.
