Garconniere specifications for Rush Creek Village home   Save
Harold Pepinsky Collection
Description: Architectural and design specifications for a garconniere on the grounds of the home of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Pepinsky in Rush Creek Village. The term garconniere refers to a small apartment or studio for an unmarried man, but in the Pepinsky's case, the structure was used as a guest room and included a dressing room, bath and small workshop. This document includes a contract for general conditions, as well as specifications for concrete, masonry, carpentry, roofing, plumbing and more. These specifications are from a collection related to the design and construction of Harold and Pauline Pepinsky's home in Rush Creek Village, an organically-designed community located in Worthington, Ohio. The community's homes were influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian style of architecture and designed by architect Theodore van Fossen, who also planned the community. The first Rush Creek home was built in 1956 and belonged to Martha and Richard Wakefield. Richard Wakefield later became the builder of the neighborhood. View on Ohio Memory.
