The first of the big budget projects that Norman referred to as 'pig-outs'. Also the first of the wannabe avant garde clients who had loads of money but not much else. This was exactly the kind of client that Norman would come to despise, and that would drive his career in a more meaningful direction. After Norman's death Perlbinder (stroking his Napoleonic ego) declared that Norman "sold out" after doing this house.
This was a magnificent house of half-levels carefully stacked up the back side of the dune with exquisite detailing and craftsmanship. Since restored (as the only project of a fresh-out-of-school son-in-law) with some additions that don't compromise it too much.
