It is a two-bedroom beach house with a two-story screened patio overlooking the gulf. The east and west exteriors are encased with the rhythmic constitution of nine columns which was built from piling lime blocks with the same style of mortar joints.
Paul wanted to create a sense of “a house within a house” by setting up different ceiling heights in the interior spaces.
Paul received an AIA merit award for this design.
It was featured in the Architectural Forum May 1959, the AIA Journal June 1960, Arts+Architecture June 1960 and House and Garden July 1960.
It was renovated and expanded in 1961 and again in the 2000’s after which it was sold to Donald R. Wilborn.
