    About the Home

    Take this exclusive home tour experience and learn about the historic Case Study House #26 built in San Rafael in 1962 designed by Beverley (David) Thorne (1924 – 2017) who liked the challenge to design houses for hillsides, typically shunned by regular developers. This home was part of the influential Case Study House program, which ran from 1945 to 1966 and defined the image of modern California architecture.

    Intended as the representative residence of Bethlehem Steel CEO Harrison Fuller, after his death, a TWA pilot/flight attendant couple lived in this home until it was sold in 2015. The structurally expressive design has been kept mostly in its original condition by past and current owners. The rational floorplan separates private from social spaces, of which the latter are accentuated by a double-height space, whose dramatic roof follows the slope of the lot.
