Marcel Breuer, Architect

The Lauck House, 1950

880 Lawrenceville Road, Princeton, NJ, 08540

Marcel Breuer's iconic 'house in garden' built in its extended version as The Lauck House in 1950. Situated in a secluded and beautiful four acre property five minutes from the town of Princeton, the house underwent restoration work in 2009 and includes an elegant gallery space addition. One of America's most famous mid-century designs, this house incorporates many of Breuer's innovations including the renowned "butterfly roof," the centrally located kitchen, projecting parapets, vertical wood interior and exterior siding. A visual connection yet physical separation of the parent's master bedroom on the balcony from the children's area at the opposite side, the original Breuer stairs and rope rail, are still intact. The house contains nine rooms: four bedrooms, four bathrooms, studio, playroom, living room, family room, kitchen and two car garage. Mentioned in
