“This contemporary style house by the New York architect Edward Durell Stone designed prior to his fixation with masonry solar screens- was an important model locally for architects who wanted to go modern but were not willing to commit themselves unreservedly to the precepts of Frank Lloyd Wright or Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The house is not visible from the street.” – Stephen Fox, Houston Architecture Guide 2002. This description was written prior to the house`s destruction.
