House B – 417 Little Switzerland Road

Among the first of the houses planned for the development, House B is one of a group along the north side of the access drive that have similar (or exactly  in reverse) plans.  It was in this  group  that the designers first  experi­mented  with the  upstairs living room, the downstairs kitchen  and  dining  room and  the front door  halfway  between  floors.  To keep maintenance  costs   low,  hollow  tile   (of   a warm, sandy-earth color)  is used for  wall construction; the  casements   are  steel; and interior surfaces are  plastered.
