Vintage photo of the Roush Residence
The Roush Residence (1954) was designed by Terry Waters, a brilliant and talented architect who studied and worked with three legendary 20th century modernists: Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin, John Lautner in Los Angeles, and Walter S. White in Palm Desert. This unusual steel frame home with open web beams must be experienced in person to be fully appreciated. There is no other house like it! Terry Waters' work was recognized internationally by acclaimed magazines such as Arts + Architecture and Domus.
