Eichler Homes was a company, by visionary Joseph Eichler, that built over 11,000 Mid-Century modern homes in California between 1950 and 1974. Eichler was responsible for bringing modern architecture to middle-class Americans. Eichler Homes commissioned some of the most prominent modern architects of the time including Anshen & Allen, Claude Oakland & Associates, Jones & Emmons, A. Quincy Jones, and Raphael Soriano.
The photos above were taken by Darren Bradley and are part of a collection of Eichler Homes that he’s photographed. Also, be sure to check out his other Flickr collections.
