70 Latham, Berkeley

R W Long is not an architect that we are otherwise familiar with, but this unusual early mid-century that he designed for himself in Berkeley is certainly worthy of note. It is full of what appear to be exposed wood braced frames, which are virtually unheard of in a home of this vintage. Add to that all of the more familiar Bay Region modernist materials and textures, and the result is intriguing indeed.
