A Modern Eichler House

Joseph Leopold Eichler was a 20th-century post-war American Real Estate Developer known for developing distinctive residential subdivisions of Mid-Century modern style tract housing in California.   Eichler was one of the influential advocates of bringing modern architecture from custom residences and large corporate buildings to general public availability.   Eichler was the only merchant builder in America who built modern style homes on a large scale, designed by skilled architects using quality materials. 

From 1949 to 1966, the "Eichler Homes Company" built more than 10,000 homes in the San Francisco area and about 900 in the Southern California area. 

Later, Knopf Architecture utilized their all-inclusive experience with the classic original high pitch, (A-Frame Eichler Architecture design) to a double-gable residence in mountain view, giving the Eichler mid-century family abode in Burlingame, California a modern makeover, while updating the best of its vintage Eichler design features.
