Built in 1954, the Donald and Helen Olsen House is the architect's own home. Listed on the prestigious National Register of Historic Places, the Olsen House presents a striking counterpoint to the more familiar Bay Area Modern Style. Built seemingly as a demonstration project, the architect applied his International Style training to create his own "machine for living in a garden."
