McCandlish Residence, Mt Pleasant St, Cambridge, MA, 1958


In this project, Paul Rudolph converted an abandoned garage into a family residence.
"The free flow of space is more often defined decoratively than structurally. The formal wall arrangement of antique plates defines the dining area. The fireplace 'centers' a conversation grouping. Two grand pianos are the focal point of a music 'room.' Where space divisions were inevitable for bedrooms and work areas, Mr. Rudolph has used the 'bay' divisions of the original structure. The large, central living area divides the master bedroom, dressing room and guestroom-study on one side of the house, from the children’s rooms and kitchen on the other."
