heh. They are. You have to be inside one to realize how radically
different the feeling is, because of the amount and placement of
glass, and the open design. Typically, the living and dining rooms
and kitchen are clustered but separated by a freestanding wall that
goes only part way to the peaked ceiling, which has exposed beams;
light and sound are gently shared within that communal space.

Compared to the standard tract home (then or now) it's a revelation;
a spectacular example of highlighting space, rather than boxing it
up into cave-like warrens.

Frighteningly, in the Bay Area, that *is* middle-class :-/
