A National Register Nomination was prepared for this important residence, constructed in 1939 for the Alfred and Juanita Bromberg in the Lakewood area of Dallas. The house is an early and pivotal work of O’Neil Ford, a nationally prominent architect known for developing the ‘Texas Regionalism’ style.
Texas Regionalism is an evolution of a modern architectural style that reflects the Texas climate, materials and culture as well as a house’s particular location in a simple and honest design. This house is his first house designed in this style and is an important record of the beginning of this new design idiom.
The project is scheduled for listing in the National Register of Historic Places in early 2007, with a state level of significance.
