Meet the Designer - Joseph Eichler

null - Houseplans.com
The latest additions to our American Classics/Rare Historical Plans Collection include copies of four mid-century modern Eichler home designs. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs spent part of his childhood in an Eichler house, according to the new Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson. He quotes Jobs: "Eichler did a great thing. His houses were smart and cheap and good. They brought clean design and simple taste to lower income people." Isaacson writes that Jobs said his appreciation for Eichler homes instilled in him a passion for making nicely designed products for the mass market. Another quote from Jobs: "I love it when you can bring really great design and simple capability to something that doesn't cost much...It was the original vision for Apple."

California developer Joseph Eichler brought modern architecture to the suburbs in the 1950s and 1960s when he hired contemporary architects like Anshen & Allen and Jones & Emmons to design his tract houses. At Anshen & Allen the principal designer for Eichler homes was Claude Oakland, who had studied architecture at Tulane University in New Orleans before working briefly for maverick architect Bruce Goff in Berkeley. In 1960 Eichler contracted directly with Oakland, allowing him to start his own firm where he worked with longtime colleague Kinji Imada. The latter received his masters in architecture from Harvard, where he studied with Walter Gropius. The firm became Oakland and Imada Architects in the 1970s. While most of their work was for Eichler, they also designed redevelopment housing and other projects. Oakland died in 1989; Imada in 2005.

The four Claude Oakland plans shown here were designed for two Bay Area developments – one in Mill Valley and one in the Oakland Hills – during the 1960s and include classic modern features like atriums and galleries. They’re all about casual indoor-outdoor living. A percentage of the price of each plan supports the Environmental Design Archives at U. C. Berkeley, which preserves the original Oakland/Imada drawings and the records of other significant California architects and landscape architects.

For more about Eichler homes see the excellent Eichler: Modernism Rebuilds the American Dream (Gibbs Smith, 2002) by Paul Adamson and Marty Arbunich with photography by Ernie Braun. Information about Eichler communities is available from Eichler Network (www.eichlernetwork.com) and the quarterly CA Modern.

Important Information

All sales on house plans and customization/modifications are final. No refunds or exchanges can be given once your order has started the fulfillment process.

All house plans from Houseplans are designed to conform to the local codes when and where the original house was constructed.

In addition to the house plans you order, you may also need a site plan that shows where the house is going to be located on the property. You might also need beams sized to accommodate roof loads specific to your region. Your home builder can usually help you with this. You may also need a septic design unless your lot is served by a sanitary sewer system. Many areas now have area-specific energy codes that also have to be followed. This normally involves filling out a simple form providing documentation that your house plans are in compliance.

To find out what documents you should expect with your house plans, see what's included?

In some regions, there is a second step you will need to take to insure your house plans are in compliance with local codes. Some areas of North America have very strict engineering requirements. Examples of this would be, but not limited to, earthquake-prone areas of California and the Pacific Coast, hurricane risk areas of the Florida, Gulf & Carolina Coasts. New York, New Jersey, Nevada, and parts of Illinois require review by a local professional as well. If you are building in these areas, it is most likely you will need to hire a state licensed structural engineer to analyze the design and provide additional drawings and calculations required by your building department. If you aren’t sure, building departments typically have a handout they will give you listing all of the items they require to submit for and obtain a building permit.

Additionally, stock plans do not have a professional stamp attached. If your building department requires one, they will only accept a stamp from a professional licensed in the state where you plan to build. In this case, you will need to take your house plans to a local engineer or architect for review and stamping. In addition, plans which are used to construct homes in Nevada are required to be drawn by a licensed Nevada architect.
