Clarence Mayhew was by no means devout in his practice of modernism. He built an enormously successful residential architecture practice in the 40s and 50s primarily by designing homes for the well-heeled residents of Piedmont, many of whom had relatively conservative tastes when it came to design. Occasionally however, when he was given free rein, his true modernist tendencies would shine through. Such was the case with his own famous Piedmont residence that he designed in conjunction with Serge Chermayeff and so it is with our featured home today. As with most Piedmont homes it has seen a fair amount of updating over the years but even so, Mayhew’s spare aesthetic and thoughtful organization of spaces still shines through.
