During the 1940s and 1940s Krakower along with such other Houston architects as Mackie & Kamrath, Wilson, Morris & Crain, and Lloyd & Morgan designed modern, suburban office buildings with an intimate, domestic scale. The crisply detailed Houston Compressed Steel Corp. building with its many references to the ranch house is an excellent example of this trend. The building is located in section of Houston where rapid residential development, mostly in the form of multi-story townhouses has been replacing the original light industrial operations established in the first decades of the twentieth century.
