As mentioned above, Florida Southern was designed by FLW.

Thanks for sharing this. Eichler's story is my personal favorite when it comes to design. His work inspire's my own each and every day.

Lived in one in Marinwood for four years. Flat tar roof that leaked. Radiant heating in floor never worked in one room. Tons of heat leaking glass. High ceilings in some rooms, but cramped. No insulation in walls. Earlier versions had no firebreaks in studs.
We sold in 77 for 80k. Now supposedly worth $1.4 million. Good grief!
