Pennington Haile House, 1951
From Progressive Architecture, 1954
Progressive Architecture, 1954
The architects sited the house to take advantage of views across the valley by placing the main rooms on the upper level. Haile wished first to have a comfortable home and quiet place in which to write; second, enough space to entertain; and, third, a place devoted to the enjoyment of fine piano and recorded music. The Hunters not only designed the house, but chose the furniture, fabrics, and all interior accessories, down to the last piece of tableware. The furniture was designed by Jens Risom and Herman Miller.
