Description
This house for Robert VanWyck Maverick was one of only two houses Smith built in Texas. It was considered one of the best examples of a courtyard-centered house at the time of its construction. The plan for the house was U-shaped, with a fourth wall enclosing the courtyard. The bedrooms were along one wing, the kitchen and service areas the other, and the main living area connected the two wings. As with many of Smith's houses, the Maverick files contain many preliminary sketches and elevations, along with renderings by Riggs.
