Samuel Eppstein Residence (1948)

Galesburg, Michigan
HW #54

The concrete block structure had a more dynamic front façade, while forming a more discreet entrance through the void in the masses. It had similar composition and usage of materials – concrete as the masonry structure and wood as the secondary extrusions from the concrete. The concrete had a more weathered look than the house before. The cladding appears slightly dimmer due to the shadows cast by the large overhangs and the orientation of the building.
The roof shoots up the entire 15 degrees, opening up the interior space and bringing in light.
(the house later, where the roof was supposed to continue on like this but was redesigned due to regulations in cost.)
