This Mid-Century Modern classic was designed by Donald Blair and William Fletcher in 1958 as a display home for Wedgewood homes and won an AIA Merit Award in 1960. Wedgewood asked the architects to create a house of the future, pulling out all of the stops and reimaging past notions about residential design. The architects found inspiration in the Modernist movement as well as the International Style. Taking a cue from the painter Mondrian they employed bold colors and geometric patterns that are scattered throughout the home. Mid-Century characteristics are also apparent in the juxtaposition of solid and voids. All of this was done 50 years ago but is as valid and up to date today as it was then and will be for another 50 years.
