the project


traditional residences

Through his mid-century modern homes, Loewenstein’s clients brought an avant garde cultural and social agenda to the community attempting to redefine itself in the 1950s and 1960s. Simultaneously, alongside the Modern structures, the firm designed more than 200 Ranch and Colonial-inspired structures featuring more traditional details. Two traditional examples include the Addie and John R. Miller Residence (1954) and the Doris and W.C. Boren III Residence (1954). Both traditional and Modern, this rich array of commissions speaks to the varying values of the community, some of whom embraced Modernism while others expressed their allegiance to more traditional forms and stylistic elements.
