John Duncan Forsyth Residence
2927 South Birmingham Place (map it)
This house was designed by John Duncan Forsyth. It is a two-story, flat roofed house containing a massing of plain, unbroken surfaces in horizontal bands. A low concrete landscaping wall across the front of the property seems to extend, as an integral part of the house, from the garage and from the south wing. Painted white with teal blue detailing, the main block of the house rises like a ship’s deck from the landscape with one curved wall inset with a corner glass block window. The front projecting garage wall adjoins the recessed entry canopy. This strong horizontal feature is repeated on the second level by a cantilevered canopy over the deck.
