Rose Ann Shearin Residence
Address: 34-03 Murray Street
Architect: Shearin, Rose Ann
Current Status: Extant
Award: Bronze Plaque for Residences
Unfortunately a rarity even by 1970, the Rose Ann Shearin Residence is an extant example of a woman-designed building, in this case by a woman named Rose Ann Shearin who designed it to evoke a West Coast aesthetic. The house is clad in white brick known as White Marsh designed to give it an an aged patina and the top floor incorporates a mansard roof. Wood-fronted balconies on both upper floors supported by columns have subsequently been removed.
