Violeta Autumn’s home

 

Sausalito2

A 100 square metre house cuddling up to a Sausalito cliff with a view out to the sea, designed in 1959 by architect Violeta Autumn for herself.

It’s a small jewel James Bond could have lived in.

Or visited.

  1. It looks to be beautifully built as well - a craftsman's work.

    1. Hi k. The Wright Chat site has the page numbers etc. and a good discussion.

      I'm afraid this is the only house of hers I know about -- and a quick Google search reveals very little more, unfortunately.

  4. Do you have any of her other work?
