Koblick House

The Koblick duplex is a clear example of the vernacular of Early Modernism. One of the first to be constructed on a steep plot, the structure braces itself against the incline rather than cantilevered from it. The stucco balconies seem to float between the steel-framed glass windows though anchored by the vertical slab on the north side of the structure.
