Watch: Classic Spaces: Jens Risom's Weekend Home: Block Island

. Wednesday, November 28, 2012

A couple of years ago I had posted a few archived photos of Jens Risom's prefab weekend retreat, from a 1967 Life magazine feature. Skeptics expected it to only stand a year before being blown down by winds. It was a nice surprise to learn that not only does the structure still stand, it is still being used by Jens Risom and his family today.

In this beautiful short film from Dwell, Risom reminisces on the construction of this truly amazing home.

Curious if you know exactly which November 1967 issue this was featured in?
