Walter White: La Quinta units (La Quinta, Calif.)



Walter White designed and built the four houses which are considered the La Quinta Units (or Bungalows) on land adjacent to the Breedlove house, which he built for his mother-in-law. The four T-shaped houses were designed as middle-class dwellings for permanent residents of La Quinta. The uniquely shaped roof with wide overhangs, privacy walls surrounding the garden, and air conditioning highlighted some of the more desirable features of the houses.
