November Mod of the Month

Houston Mod invites you to join us this Sunday, November 6, 2016,
for a Mod of the Month open house event from 2 - 4 PM.

Please help us find new preservation-minded owners for these vintage modern/contemporary houses located in the Tanglewood and Memorial areas of Houston, about 7 miles west of downtown.

Thanks to Houston MODern Market for sponsoring this FREE event. Save the date for the next MODern Market on April 21-23, 2017

This nifty vintage contemporary style house contains a treasure trove of sought after mod details starting with a rare translucent fiberglass front door and leading through to the glamorous swimming pool and terrace complete with outdoor wet bar and gas-fired tiki torches. The flowing living areas surround a large and open high ceilinged kitchen still with original arrangement and cabinetry. The breakfast room has an original wall mural, metal screen space dividers, planter box and likely a Higgins glass Rondelay window screen. Many other delightful vintage features complete the scene.

Houston Mod publications make excellent gifts and will be available at this location on Sunday.

Architect Ralph Anderson designed this AIA award winning house in 1978 for fellow Rice architecture alum David Chapman and wife Erminie Chambers. Anderson (1923-1990), joined the prominent architecture firm of Wilson, Morris & Crain in 1947 and became a partner in 1952. His other projects include the Astrodome, Houston Post Building, and the endangered Frank Erwin Center.  
 
The design for the Chapman house provides numerous decks and walls of glass making the most of the lush wooded ravine setting. Additional features include art display walls, dramatic sloped ceilings, sky roofs, lofts, catering area, and a motor court, all magnificently maintained.

Reading through this post, the name Ralph Anderson caught my eye, because of the Astrodome, of course, which he designed with other prominent architects. I really hope the fate of that building turns out to be a good one.
