ON THE COVER:
Case Study House #26 in San Rafael, CA, is a one-of-a-kind home built in 1963 in the San Francisco Bay area. Designed by architect Beverley David Thorne, it was an experimental project to build a steel-framed house on a steeply sloping site. The current owner and architect, Cord Struckmann, recently remodeled the interior of the residence, selecting 24- x 48-inch porcelain tile from the Concrete line by Gigacer for the floor- ing throughout the living space. The tile provided durability, while also a contemporary aesthetic. Read more about Case Study House #26's interior renovation, beginning on page 26. Photo by Rob Jordan.
