In many ways, this house is an outlier in the Case Study program. Instead of creating another steel-framed design seen in many of the previous submissions, the architects chose wood as the primary construction material, which allowed them to explore the potential of wood as it pertained to mass production. The use of wood also allowed them to put a modern twist on the American Craftsman style while staying true to its Southern California heritage.

Let’s take a look at a house that architect Rodney Walker never imagined would end up as part of the Case Study Program in the first place. Walker designed the house as his own family home, and it wasn’t discovered by Arts and Architecture editor John Entenza until a few years after it was built.

Next up, let’s take a look at Case Study House #10. Although it wasn’t commissioned by Arts and Architecture, the house was included upon its completion in 1947 to maintain continuity in the program’s numbering system. Designed by a father and son team of architects, Kemper Nomland and Kemper Nomland Jr., the house exemplifies the low cost modern building design that later became a widespread trend throughout Southern California.
