Crisply defined cubic volumes, rendered in contrasting wood cladding with ganged-together horizontal windows indicate the building as orthodox modern. The wood cladding and white-painted wood window frames are trademarks of the Bay Region style of modernism.
While formally rigorous, the jutting upper level volumes, wrapping the contrasting base, canted bay window and a curved chimney are expressively sculptural. Note the extended portion of the upper level volume on Divisadero Street that suggests the exterior garden space beyond.
