The Big Dig House by Single Speed Design
Six Moon Hill in Lexington, Massachusetts is a residential community that is all modernistic, by (TAC) a group of young architects with the direction of Bauhaus Walter Gropius made this 29 lot community in 1945. The houses are characteristic of being rectangular shaped, with wood sidings, flat and cantilevered roofs, large glass panes and innovative materials with a form follows function ordeal. The lots are set up on a 20-acre site cul-de-sac with shared pool and field. Every house in this community follows postwar modernism guidelines maintaining the same aesthetic conception. The idea of a community that promotes peacefulness in a full-out war time makes me think that these group was trying to become hermits of some sort.
