Kirschman Residence (1962)

, originally uploaded by .
in 1960 architect Charles R. Colbert designed a new residence for Victor F. Kirschman at 12 Swan Street in Lake Vista. The house was designed to maximize views of Lake Pontchartrain over the levee and beyond the park. Kirschman was the president of Kirschman Furniture founded by his father Morris Kirschman in 1914.

The view of the lake is completely blocked by the levee, it also floods part of it because it is built as a slab on grade. This house is unattractive from all side, but from Swan, it awful.
