Callahan Residence

A living room on a platform.
— Paul Rudolph, Architectural Record June 1966
Each space is handled as an independent volume with major openings toward the principal view, but with interconnections and interpenetrations of space in a multiplicity of ways. In the Milam House the spaces were always tangential, but here they are offset in plan and section, thereby clearly defining individual areas.
— Paul Rudolph in Moholy-Nagy, Sibyl, and Gerhard Schwab. The Architecture of Paul Rudolph. New York: Praeger, 1970. P. 76
