12938 Hansel

The Architecture of Memorial Bend

William Norman Floyd
Year Built:1958
Original Owner:Unknown
Notable Past Residents:N/A
Publication:Houston Chronicle, June 23, 1957
Comments:This home has several twins in the neighborhood including 12922 Traviata.
Architectural Comments:This particular home was not published although the original upon which it was based, 12922 Traviata, was awarded a third prize from American Builder in a nationwide contest of model homes. While Floyd's desire for privacy led him to design many of our homes with bedrooms in the rear, this one places all three bedrooms in the front. Privacy is stressed via the use of clerestory windows above a series of sliding windows.
