indoor outdoor connection and simplicity of design. These unique homes are
either clustered into small groups or stand alone surrounded by more traditional
homes. The serene woodland settings, unique design and the use of local stone
set the Philadelphia mid-century homes apart from those around the country. In
this area, and across the country, there has been a surge of interest in
modernist architecture over the past fifteen years.
