Transcript YOUNG MEN i«: Photos: Fred Wmchell i WW : H KEELAND, 28, graduated from the University of Houston in 1950. TAYLOR, 26, it a graduate of the University of Texas School of Architecture. Both practice independently in Houston, were associated on this one Job only. FRED A. WINCHELL STUDIO AND APARTMENTS LOCATION: Houston, Tex. HARWOOD TAYLOR— BURDETTE KEELAND JR., architects J. W. LANDER CONSTRUCTION CO., general contractors R. S. CHRISTIANSEN, engineer BISHOP & WALKER, landscape architects Apartment wing and street beyond seen from studio at rear of plot STEALING SPACE ON A SMALL LOT The site is 50' x 125'. On it the photographer-client wanted a secluded studio, a patio for outdoor photography, a pair of rental apartments to carry the project, a good advertising face on the street and covered parking for at least four cars. He got everything he asked for, and some trim architecture too; it had to be trim to fit this bill. To get outdoor space, and a long, interesting vista from the street, the designers lifted the apartments on 7'-6" stilts. This device also accommodates the cars underneath, and gives the apartments privacy. The living rooms overlook a charming interior court; the bedrooms are shielded from the street by a long sign bearing the client's escutcheon at one end. The studio itself is a handsome little temple at the back of the plot, with a luxurious approach across the garden patio. The floor of this garden, continues the 10' module of both buildings, which are simple steel frame—5" columns and 8" channels- filled with stucco, glass and brick panels. Cost: $31,561, or about $10 per sq. ft. Street view.Black wall hides alley for apartment air conditioners 144 THE MAGAZINE OF BUILDING
