Contemporary design is such a big part of the Sunnyvale scene that even its fire stations are mid-century modern architecture. Sunnyvale has approximately 1100 Eichlers in at least sixteen tracts, from Joe’s first efforts, built to stock plans, to his first architect-designed homes, to some of his last developments. The range of Joe’s work in Sunnyvale makes it like an Eichler archeological dig site. I don’t know of any other city, including Palo Alto, that can match it. Watching the progression of Eichler offerings is almost like being there in the sales office with Joe and his architects as they refined their product to keep pace with a changing market.
