Notes NOTES: Sometimes referred to as the 'Courtyard House', this glass-sided house was designed by Hordern for his parents. He had travelled in the United States and had been particularly influenced by Craig Ellwood who produced rectilinear steel-framed houses in southern California, known as case study houses.
