Allied Construction built thousands of homes in the Phoenix Metro area throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Popular Allied communities include Village Grove, Hidden Village, Village Meadows and Rancho Ventura. Architect Charles Schreiber partnered with a number of builders during his career, including Dell Webb and Allied Construction locally. Charles Schreiber was an innovator and is credited with being an integral part of the first condominum project in the Phoenix area, The Orchard House (1963).

Most notably, Schreiber designed a trademark mid-century modern elevation for Allied, which was featured in several Allied communities. There are approximately 50 of the mid-century modern elevation for plan 2321 in Village Grove, Hidden Village and Village Meadows. Trademark features of the mid-century modern elevation are the low-sloped roof, front wall of windows, exposed beams, tapered front patio posts and the telltale detail; fenestrated blockwork at the entry.

There are 2 block patterns seen on Charles Schreiber’s elevation for Allied Construction’s plan 2321:

Domino Pattern

3 Rectangles Pattern

Schreiber has said that the plan 2321 elevation that we refer to as Mid-Century Modern was inspired by Hawaiian and Polynesian architecture. The idea was to create an open floorplan with an emphasis on the indoor/outdoor connection and that would emulate the places he had seen while working in Hawaii.

Plan 2321 was the most popular plan in Village Grove. The mid-century modern elevation, as designed by architect Charles Schreiber, was $1,000 more than the traditional ranch elevations, in the 1960s.
