The Heartwood House (1949)

There is a GREAT entry over at JazzWax combining 2 of my favorite topics: modern architecture and modern jazz. Jump over here to read all about the Oakland, California house Beverley Thorne designed for pianist Dave Brubeck.

For further reading, here is an excerpt from Pierluigi Serraino's NorCal Mod. An excellent book that I would highly recommend for any appreciator of mid-century modern architecture, particularly those of you with an affinity for the San Francisco-Bay Area.

Thanks for the tip- that is a KILLER house (for a killer guy).
