Parade of 1956 Home Plans #18: Seattle, WA

 This house designed by Paul Hayden Kirk reminds me very much of the houses in Los Angeles designed by Craig Ellwood -- particularly his 1951 case study house #16 (the Salzman House) at 1811 Bel Air Road, right down to the obscure glass fence at the front.



Today the house appears to be in original condition.  Go here to read more about Paul Hayden Kirk.  This article discusses an entire neighborhood in Seattle designed by Kirk and if you search google images you'll find quite a few images of Kirk houses.

Thanks for posting. I believe this was Kirk's Electri-living Home, demolished within the last couple years. Excellent vintage interior pics from the UW archive seen here:
