Robert E. Evans House

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Robert E. Evans House, 551 Woodlands Drive; 1974-1976; William Nowysc, Architect, of Iowa City, Iowa; Fuller Brothers Construction, Contractors.The house consists of two wings with a "lantern" that marks their intersection. Retaining walls of treated wood contain a pool deck that nestles between the embracing "arms" of the house. The house is a good local example of contemporary architectural design. Of natural wood and stone materials and concern for the site, the house fittingly adapts to its environment. At the same time, and consistent with the most recent fashion in architectural design, the composition is not static. The diagonal line is important in the composition and is expressed by shed roofs, diagonal wood siding, and angled wings in plan, as well as by the slope of the site.
