An (architecturally) cool summer afternoon

We enjoyed a well-fed and cool (architecturally speaking) summer afternoon Sunday, June 12, 2011 at the home of Doug & Alice Hewitt, owners of this 1956 gem at 918 Highland Dr., next to the Hillcrest Elementary. The house was designed by Robert Hess, a KU architecture grad, for Reuter Organ executive Franklin Mitchell and his family. If you missed the gathering you can watch the video and hear architectural historian Dennis Domer talk about the house’s wonderful design. You can also check out the house on our Baker’s Dozen list here.
