The article focuses on the restoration of a vintage house in Buckhad, Georgia. Sylvia and Larry Feldman, the couple, were surprised to stumble across one for sale while shopping for "a country house in the city. Neglect had turned it into an overgrown eyesore, but the single-story, L-shaped architecture was unmistakable. The couple discovered a sheaf of papers that led them to retired Atlanta architect William Pulgram. It turned out he had designed the house as a young man and was able to provide a full set of blueprints. Three years later, Sylvia saw a home in a magazine by architect/designer Heriberto Brito, known for his affinity to mid-century modern design, and they immediately put in a call. The Feldman house is a rare local example of the influence of the California Case Study House program, which was initiated in 1945 by the avant-garde Arts & Architecture magazine. While some master bedrooms are designed to afford visual repose, the Feldmans' stimulates the eye with bold geometries and bright reds and yellows.
