Architect Joseph Krakower, with associate Herb Greene, designed this exceptional house in 1957 for the Salzman family who owned it until 2014. The house incorporates a number of handsome artistic design elements making it a pleasure to experience.  When touring, note the repeated triangular theme, pyramidal volumes over several rooms, the corner-placed plate glass windows, and the textured glass elements with graduated divisions. The house was damaged by Hurricane Harvey but has recently been elevated and repaired in a thoughtful manner. It is listed in the AIA Houston Architecture Guide along with the house next door, 3611 North Braeswood, by the same architects.
