John and Syd Dobkins Residence (1953)

Canton, Ohio
HW #35

It is based on an equilateral triangle, with a unit side of 4 feet. The triangular brick wall directs visitors to entrance and separates views from the living room area. The uniquely sloping roof of terne metal plate is painted in a bluish hue in order to visually connect the roof with the sky, integrating the building with nature.
