First offering: the Donald and Helen Olsen House, 1954; the architect's own home! Listed on the prestigious National Register of Historic Places, and a City of Berkeley Historic Landmark, the Olson House presents a striking counterpoint to the more familiar Bay Area Modern Style. Built seemingly as a demonstration project, the Harvard educated architect applied his "high art" International Style training, as championed by Walter Gropius, to create his own "machine for living in a garden." The success of this endeavor is attested to by the families' lifelong tenure, and the building's service to lives immersed in creating a better world through art, architecture, and intellectual discourse. With all its historic fabric intact, the magic of the space is still palpable, only awaiting its new owner to continue the tradition.
