    Marcel Breuer's 1959 Hooper House II was featured in Dwell's December/January 2009 issue. It’s a textbook example of Breuer’s classic “bi-nuclear” house, a division of the home into spaces for adults and children. One of Breuer's bi-nuclear houses was featured in the Museum of Modern Art's House in Garden exhibition series, which introduced modern living to the American audience.

In 1959 Marcel Breuer created a spectacularly long, low house of Maryland fieldstone in a wooded sanctuary outside of Baltimore. Known as Hooper House II, it features the "binuclear" concept of a central courtyard that separates public areas (living, dining, kitchen) from private spaces (six bedrooms and a family room). Hooper II is stringent Bauhaus; a masterful demarcation of taut planes and open plans using local, natural materials.
