The Architecture of Memorial Bend

Year Built:1957
Original Owner:Edwin Parkerson
Notable Past Residents:N/A
Comments:This appears to be a unique neighborhood design. While there are others in Memorial Bend that feature flat roofs and port cocheres, none seem to have the same look as this house.
Architectural Comments:The facade utilizes king-size brick to emphasize the horizontal lines of the house. Rather than utilizing one solid wall to support the port cochere, this house utilizes four brick columns. Behind the porte cochere is a court yard that extends on both the left and right. Floor to ceiling glass at the court yard and rear wall provide a view through the house to the backyard.
