Mushroom House

Cincinnati, Ohio

This house was built by the late Terry Brown, professor of architecture and interior design at the University of Cincinnati. The one-bedroom house sits in the otherwise traditional Hyde Park section of Cincinnati. Named for its siding that resembles the underside of a mushroom, the house was originally a run-of-the-mill bungalow. The additions and enhancements—made with wood, colored glass, seashells, and other such materials—comprised an ongoing project in organic design that lasted from 1992 to 2006. Shortly after, it was listed for sale at $525,000.
