Name: Sally and Rick
Location: Madison, Wisconsin
Years lived in: 38 years

When this Madison, Wisconsin home was built in 1935, its clean-lined architecture was considered avant-garde. The flat roof, wrap-around windows, and free-flowing interior were representative of the International Style—several examples of which were built in Madison by the renowned team of Beatty and Strang. (Hamilton Beatty studied under design pioneer Le Corbusier.) Bringing cutting-edge architecture to the masses was a signature of International Style; when the home was featured in the 1936 Architectural Forum as "The Five Thousand Dollar House," it was described as solving the problem of creating a "servantless house for a single lady." Today, it continues to be an example of forward-thinking design as owners Sally and Rick adapt it with eco-friendliness in mind.
