Transcript DESIGN SOLUTION: I purchased a forty year old simple salt box house ten years ago to be remodeled for my own home. The first re-do was rough cedar covering up the existant wooden house and then punching holes for glass sliding doors and windows. The house stayed that way until five years ago when it became surrounded by three story high pseudo-Georgian monsters. (See photograph). The next design solution was a thirty-two foot high steel and stucco wall to give privacy to my back garden and house. The steel structured wall led to the steel designed stairs which make marvelous patterns in the Texas sunshine. A new glass block bathroom was added as well as a private studio for painting but mainly for my slide collection. All my lectures for the University of Houston School of Architecture are put together in this space. There is a top sun deck which was added on the fourth level on top of the studio. The viewing from this terrace was designed on an exis with PhiIi p Johnson's great Trnasco Building which is the Eiffel Tower of Houston. A fire room was added at the end of the diningroom at the same time. The design was generated from the make-up mirror found in many bathrooms. Two mirrored doors on either side of the firebox can be arranged where one can see three fires from the diningroom or two from the living area. The idea of leaving the front of the house a dark weathered stained cedar as is and re-doing the rear in bright, shiny white stucco was on purpose. As a city such as Houston or Tokyo grows more dense, one must put on an architectural street face and a smiling, happy private face.
