Richard J. Christensen House, Racine Wisconsin

John Randal McDonald set the standard for many mid-century residences with this 1954 project. The Riverhome or "Ogawa-uchi" in 801 Lathrop Avenue Racine, Wisconsin. He was just a grad student at the time, but rose to become a prominent architecture of homes. He emphasized integration with nature through use of materials, colors, and views. It is an elegant design of building elements with a holistic view of the site's environment
