His houses have become sought after by the art and architecture cognoscenti. The Laurel View Residence (1926) features huge towering flying buttresses overlooking the neighboring architectural works, Frank Lloyd Wright's Storer Residence (1923), and Charles Kyson's De Witt House (1925), to show the other architects who was the top dog when it came to design.Spectacular home by one of the great innovative architects of the 1920's.
