This style is an architect-driven style reflecting the radically new ideas and designs initially popularized in Europe in the 1920s. Weston is fortunate to have 2 examples built during the 1930s, some of the earliest in New England.
Theme & Style
The underlying premise of the style is simplicity - sheerness, flatness, smoothness, and unornamented plainness - emphasizing the purity of geometric forms. Houses built in this style tend to have strong rectangular planes decorated primarily by windows asymmetrically placed on the facade.
