From the Agent: "Included in the 1961 Modern House Tour, the Evans House is an iconic architectural masterpiece designed by James Evans as his own home. Using a thin-shell structural system, Evans designed his one-story (plus lower level) house with a hyperbolic paraboloid roof, allowing a nearly completely open plan as few inter-load carrying supports are necessary. His intent to mesh indoor and outdoor living spaces is further emphasized through the living/dining room’s six sliding-glass doors."
