Moore’s second project, 1938, was the Karl Arndt residence on East Exposition Ave. in Denver. This design was purely International Style, one of several modern structures that appeared in Denver between 1935 and World War II, and which, along with the works of Caspar Hegner, Victor Hornbein, and Burnham Hoyt, would influence the construction of houses and apartment & office buildings in Denver for decades.
