Oberly House by A. M. Strauss in Fort Wayne, Ind.
A recent request brought out the drawings for the Oberly House located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Designed by architect A. M. Strauss (1895-1958) in 1940-41, the house is a fascinating example of stylish art deco designs (note the stair railing in the blueprint) and traditional elements, such as the paneled library and Tudor revival exterior.
