Here, by treating the garage as an integral component of the house, an entirely new dwelling type was developed that was not to go unrepeated, particularly during the 1950s and '60s. A semi-circular stair leads from a glazed entryway alongside the garage up to an open, well-lit living space. Dining area and living zone are separated by a glazed sliding partition, with a straight steel stair connecting the dining room to the garden at the rear.
