The Surprisingly Elegant Mid Century Lodge

Have a Look At This Dazzling House…


The mid century style marks a time of progress and extraordinary designs that lead to contemporary homes after experimentation in structure, fenestration, and materials.  This mid century modern home located in Orinda, CA, is one of a kind, and it takes us back to true mid century roots.  Designed by the remarkable architect of that time, Roger Lee, the wooden house has maintained its same grace and stature in its very original form.  Take a look at these photos then tell us what you think on our Facebook Page!
