The Zidell House, designed in 1953 by the Austin-based architecture firm of Lundgren & Maurer, is the preeminent residential example of the Modernist movement in the town of Taylor, Texas. The house incorporates many tenets of the International style of architecture, including horizontal bands of windows, exposed columns or pilotis that allow the structure to hover over its site, and a juxtaposition of industrial materials, such as steel casement windows and columns, with organic materials such as concrete, stucco, stone, and wood. Unique in all of Taylor, the Zidell House was listed on the National Register of Historic 5/12/09.
