The Love-Webb House reflects the personality of both client Jim Love, a Houston artist who died a year after moving into his house, and its architect, Nonya Grenader.  On close scrutiny, one can see how Love's suggestions were synthesized and enhanced by the steady hand of an architect who knew how to put aside ego in the service of architecture.  From the mechanical "cushions" that mediate between the foundation's reinforced concrete piers to the steel pipe threaded into the roof overhang on the west façade, Love's interest in the process and aesthetics of assemblage and mechanics confers on the exquisite house the qualities of a modern and ancient machine.
