December Mod of the Month
   

Houston Mod invites you to join us this Sunday, December 7, 2014 for a Mod of the Month open house event from 2 - 4 PM.

 

A vintage 1950s modern/contemporary style house situated just east of Hermann Park and two miles south of downtown Houston is featured.  The house is in need of new preservation-minded owners. Thanks to Houston MODern Market for sponsoring this FREE event.

The nationally acclaimed architecture firm of MacKie & Kamrath designed this one and two story house in 1951, about five years after principal designer Karl Kamrath developed a firindship with Frank Lloyd Wright, who's concepts greatly influenced his work. Contrasting horizontal and vertical elements of the design are reinforced with bands of ribbon windows and a dramatic double volume corner window siding the open tread stairs. The house is prominately situated on an almost half acre corner near a picturesque bend in Brays Bayou where recent landscaped trails connect to Hermann Park. 

 

The firm of MacKie & Kamrath was established in Houston in 1937 by Frederick MacKie, Jr. (1905-1984) and Karl Kamrath (1911-1988), both architects and graduates of the University of Texas. They were among the first Houston architects to design modernist buildings.  Visit the Houston Mod website for examples of their work.

 

 
Discuss this house and over 800 other mod topics at the Houston Mod Discussion Forum.
