Today we feature an unusual modified steel A-Frame designed by N Kent Linn. Linn’s homes were often angular and experimental and this one is no exception. At its core it is an A-Frame but the large dormers on the sides open the interiors so much that it is barely recognizable as such. It is an exceptionally creative take on a form that has become a ubiquitous symbol of mid-century design.
