steve job’s childhood home

from steve jobs posted in technology by pete_nice

Steve Jobs moved to this home with his parents in 1960 when he was five years old. In 1969, he met fellow computer enthusiast Steve Wozniak.

Together in 1975 they started assembling Apple Computers in the garage of this location, and by 1976 they had started Apple Computer Inc.

Architecturally, the home is a Joseph Eichler-built house, one of 11,000 built in California during a 25-year period. The homes are noted for standardized, yet expressive design. The design tends to have unadorned surfaces, clean lines, and emphasizes modernity.

Eichler himself grew up in a Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian house-- a series of contemporary homes designed for the “everyman” (Wright's term). While Eichler's style differed from Wright's, the moralistic goal of democratizing good and elegant design was an imperative for both of them.

It could be postulated there are some parallels, or at least a continuity, to Steve Job's design ethos.
