On the market: Allyn E. Morris' studio-residence located in Silver Lake, California. The late architect built this cantilevered steel-and-glass structure in 1958 for his own use. According to the listing, the home still has the original custom bathroom fixtures, mosaic, glass and hardware — all of which have been restored and preserved. The asking price is $668,000.

Morris (1922–2009) was born in San Francisco, and graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering from Stanford. In the 1950's modern architecture boom in Southern California, Morris' work didn't generate a lot of publicity, but his inventive, fluid approach should not be overlooked. Morris' other projects include the Max Bubeck House (1956) and the Murakami Residence (shown below), both in California.
