  1. Houston Mod invites you to join us this Sunday, April 29, for a very special Mod of the Month 2 PM - 4 PM. April is MODern Month in Texas. Fitting for such a special occasion, Houston MOD has arranged access to one of the state's most fantastic yet endangered modern houses. The house is located in Houston on the banks of Buffalo Bayou in Hunters Creek Village. It was designed by Richard S. Colley in 1964 for James and Dorothy Greer. Greer is a developer and business leader from Houston. The plans were a wedding gift from Colley to the Greers. The house is presently listed for sale and in need of a new preservation minded owner. Richard S. Colley (1910-1983) was a nationally acclaimed architect who worked from Corpus Christi, Texas. Educated at Texas A & M College of Architecture, he designed mostly in an organic style of architecture. In Corpus Christi, he designed a fine complex of 1950's modern civic buildings, most of which have sadly been demolished. Colley's greatest work is said to be the Texas Instruments building in Dallas he designed with Otha Neil "O'Neil" Ford. The building was listed in the Handbook of American Architecture in 1961 as one of 14 examples of great American structures. The Greer house, said to be one of Colley's finest, covers over 12,500 SF, all at ground level. Architectural historian Stephen Fox says Colley's aptitude for detailing materials and his precision at linear composition are displayed in the dun-colored brick wall surfaces and the thin projecting roof slab. The pyramid that rises above the center of the house shields an internal courtyard. Refreshments will be available. 108 Timberwilde Lane, Houston, Texas 77024 Hunters Creek Village] HAR LINK Images courtesy Ben Hill.
