인디애나 주 북부의 1964년대 조립식 주택은 2016년에 상업사진작가가 구입하였다. 그 이후 이 집에 대해 많은 연구를 하고, 웹사이트도 만들어 개조에 심혈을 기울였고 결과적으로 유리와 알루미늄 패널로 된 강철 프레임 주택이 탄생되었다. 이 곳에는 간이차고와 지하실, 벽난로 등이 갖추어져 있으며 노출 강철은 검은색으로, 알루미늄 패널은 애나멜을 이용해 41가지 색상으로 칠해져있다.
The Frost House is located in Michigan City, a town along Lake Michigan where many Chicago residents have summer homes. Other notable architecture in the area includes several "Century of Progress" homes that were exhibited at the 1933 Chicago World's Fair.
Valentine, a talent strategy executive, and Coscarelli, a commercial photographer, purchased the residence in 2016 from original owners Dr Robert Frost and his wife, Amelia, who were in their 90s at the time. Valentine and Coscarelli have since spent considerable effort researching the house and even created a website for it.
Built in 1964, the three-bedroom home was designed by Emil Tessin, a MIT graduate. It was one of 22 prefabricated models conceived by the Alside Homes company, all of which featured steel framing with glass and aluminium panels. Buyers could select from a range of special features, including carports, basements, fireplaces, screened-in porches and furniture packages.
The homes came with exposed steel that was painted black, and aluminium panels that were faced with baked-enamel offered in 41 different colours. The Frost House features a mix of canary yellow, bright white, peacock blue and kelly green.
"You can see the influence in the home from Case Study Houses, notably the EamesHouse and the homes designed by Craig Ellwood and Pierre Koenig," said Valentine, noting that they also see references to the work of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. "We joke that our house is the IKEA version of the Farnsworth House."
