While not the first residential A-frame (there are at least 3 confirmed houses from the 1920s to the 1940s), this house by Andrew Michael Geller was the first to receive international publicity. Owned by Betty Reese, marketing director for Raymond Loewy Associates, this house was prominently featured in the New York Times and several architectural magazines. It spawned countless A-frame copies and became a symbol of weekend getaway architecture.
