Josephine M. Hagerty House

This is another home designed by Walter Gropius and the first house commissioned by his German based architecture firm Bauhaus built in the United States. It was built in 1938 and is placed in Cohasset Massachusetts overlooking the Massachusetts Bay. This house design was a great choice to encompass the beautiful landscape of the bay area due to its floor to ceiling glass windows at the back of the home. It was one of the first examples of foreign design within the United States. It is understanding how this design became popular over the decades after this one was built. it was able to bring the outside in with the large windows and show off the surrounding area of the bay.
