Barry Goldwater house, Phoenix, 1958
Book of Homes, An Idea-Filled Collection by the West's Leading Architects, was a high-class periodical, similar to Record Houses, published twice yearly. Each edition is a treasure trove of midcentury gems, many of which I've not seen anywhere else, so I'll share more of them in subsequent posts. Here's the entire article about Paul Christian Yaeger's design for Senator Goldwater, five years before he ran for presidency against Lyndon Johnson.
Total square footage was 4560 square feet. Notice there's not one square room. I particularly like the idea of a triangular bathroom. To see pictures of the house today, go here.
