Jules Gregory

partnership with William Hunt from 1949

personal home ca.1960  Jules Gregory

From the Architectural Record of 1961
"This fanciful house achieves quite an air of distinction from its eye-catching double conoid roof.  The double conoid roof is formed by two identical laminated wood beams on either of the long walls of the building.  One is used upside down in relation to the other.  ( A peak on one side is a valley on the other.)  A straight laminated beam is at the center.  The roof deck is made of white fir (2by 3's)  The roof is free standing, supported by wood posts.    Full expression of the roof shape is emphasized by running all partitions only to a height of 7 ft, and keeping all of them non-bearing.  Acoustic privacy is achieved by sheets of glass spanning the partition tops to the roof.  Stone walls give bracing and texture to the stucco and glass panels."

"Buiding cost about 30,000 in 1960"
