Louis Kahn's Esherick House—Now With Color Photos

New, 1 comment

When we first wrote about Louis Kahn's famed Esherick House, we suggested it might be hard to find a buyer because it's a one-bedroom house, which isn't to everyone's liking. The original owner, Margaret Esherick, was the daugher of Wharton Esherick, a well-known sculptor. These color photos provide a better view of the kitchen that Wharton designed—in particular, the sculptural sink. How about we set up a Curbed Philly fund (phund?) for homes like this, we all chip in, and then maintain the house (the phund would have to grow) as originally intended by the architect? Shouldn't take us too long to put the cash together—if maybe Gerry Lenfest gets on board. · How Do You Sell a Louis Kahn One-Bedroom in Chestnut Hill? [CPHI]
