The Architecture of Memorial Bend

Year Built:1956
Original Owner:Smith H. Pratt
Notable Past Residents:Unknown
Publication:Houston Chronicle, December 9, 1956
Architectural Comments:The planar facade of this house leaves passers-by wondering what lies behind the gated entrance. From the side, one can see that the house actually has a butterfly roof. Unfortunately, this house has been owned as a rental house for years and it has not been maintained as nicely as it should. Real estate pictures for this rental show that this house has many modern touches such as an open floor plan, exposed beams, a free-standing fireplace, lots of glass and an "open" kitchen. The house originally featured a room high acquarium with lighting effects between two baths.
