Clarence + Libbie Residence
Greensboro (1954)

Loewenstein designed the large two-story residence on a large lot at the intersection of Nottingham Road and Sunset Drive. Uniting the scheme under deep eaves, the brick house contains both a two-story section to the west and a corresponding one-story section on the east. Loewenstein gathered windows into large and regular groupings along all fa├žades, lending a contemporary air to the structure, somewhat still embedded in the more traditional language of the Irving Park neighborhood. Very little photographic documentation survives of the interior, though shop drawings from the Crane Company Display Rooms (Greensboro) indicate an elaborate series of built in cases and storage units throughout the home. Developers demolished the structure in the mid-1990s with the lot divided for two larger houses.
