Designed by Hayden Walling, home of painter James Lechay (1907-2001), remains one of the best examples of Modest Bauhaus architecture near outer Cape Cod in Wellfleet, Mass. Built in the fifties and sixties, the summer homes, "Though humble in budget, materials, and environmental impact, the Outer Cape's Modern houses manage to be manifestos of their designers' philosophy and way of living, close to nature, immersed in art, and seeking community," according to the Cape Cod Modern House Trust. With the area filled with homes once belonging to other émigré European modernist the Cape Cod Modern House Trust was "founded to collect, archive, and share documentation of the outer Cape's exceptional modern architecture, restore a group of important, endangered modern houses, and to relaunch them as platforms for new creative work." This beautifully designed space can be seasonally rented, you can find out more information by going to We Need A Vacation, which would make for an inspirational getaway not just for the creatives and artists alike.
