  1. February Mod of the Month Houston Mod invites you to join us Sunday, February 27, 2022 for a Mod of the Month open house event from 2 - 5 PM. Please help find new preservation minded owners for these outstanding vintage modern houses located in the historic Rice University and Old Braeswood areas, about 4 miles southwest of downtown Houston. Special Addition: Architectural historian Stephen Fox will give a brief talk at both houses. Thanks to Houston MODern Market for sponsoring this FREE event. Photo: Stephen Fox 1601 Milford Street, North Edgemont, Houston, TX 77006 (Open 2 - 4 PM) HAR Link | Google Map Campbell & Keller designed this house in 1937 employing the scarcely found modernistic style. Many of the original design elements remain such as the stucco walls and signature glass block corner window. The original flat roof and windows have been changed and the pipe railing along the front roof deck removed. The interior maintains its marvelous aluminum stair banisters. 2430 Maroneal Street, Braeswood, Houston, TX 77030 (Open 3 - 5 PM) HAR Link | Google Map Lou Lewis of the successful Lewis and Coker Supermarket chain built this swanky house in 1954 for his family in the Braeswood neighborhood just blocks from the renowned Shamrock Hotel, then the center of Houston's social scene. The inviting interior, made lively with an array of interesting wood, patterned glass, stone and fixtures, is still significantly original. Irving R. Klein (1906 - 1991) designed the house. He was a graduate of Tulane University and in 1935 established a Houston practice which by the 1980s was the city's fourth largest. They designed a number of large projects across the US. Among his favorite local projects were the Houston Children's Zoo, 2016 Main, Congregation Beth Israel and the Houston Fire Department headquarters. Link to Braeswood neighborhood tour by Stephen Fox from Cite magazine, 1986.
