Here’s another “Century Built” hollow-concrete-tile home designed by Allen R. Williams Jr. This 1954 model is at 6328 Brookside Dr. in Simms Woods. Interior designer and recently minted architect Ben Koush plucked it from obscurity and gussied it up for himself a few years back. It isn’t for sale, but it is available to compare with the unrenovated one that is, across Lawndale in Idylwood. Koush’s home has now been added to the roster for Houston Mod’s Mod of the Month open house this weekend. Both homes will be open Saturday from 1 to 4.
