Joseph Eichler's Vision Lives on in Orange. Eichler built 11,000 homes in California between the late 1940s and the mid 1960s and three of his tracts are in Orange: Fairhaven in southeast Orange, west of Esplanade Street and north of Fairhaven Avenue; Fairhills in east Orange, south of Katella Avenue and east of Hewes Street; and Fairmeadow crossing Cambridge Street north of Taft Avenue.
A young family with two children wants to build a house in the Paris suburbs, with a preference for contemporary architecture "L", with roof terrace. It is a field northwest of Paris. The land has a slope to the north, it is close to a highway and its noise pollution. The concept then provides a building shaped like an "L", which fits perfectly to the natural terrain in opening to the sun.
