Exemplifying Rudolph and Twitchell’s sensitivity to landscape and topography, the floor plane of the residence was flush with the ground so that the house, beach, lawn, and courtyard melded almost seemlessly, as in a Usonian house.

. . . this is Rudolph’s first design to read as an independent geometric object in space, contrasting with such land-hugging projects as the Twitchell and Denman residences.
