Michael Goodman was a contemporary of William Wurster and the two worked together for many years at Berkeley; but while Wurster grew up in Stockton, Goodman was born in Lithuania and therefore brought very different influences to his work. Both are considered Second Bay Region designers, but Goodman’s homes tend to lean more toward art moderne or international style than do Wurster’s. Case in point is the typically boxy home we feature today. It is full of Goodman’s trademark steel sash windows and tidy interiors – a nice example from one of the Bay Area’s earliest modernists.
