Significance: Quarters 10 is a significant example of modern military residential design. The residence employs many significant characteristics of Modern and International Style architecture and in particular uses several characteristics that relate it to the Bay Area Tradition, a local expression of the modern movement. Although designed by an unknown designer in the Bureau of Yards and Docks, the building design was undoubtedly influenced by current regional design of the time. The design of Quarters 10 was a careful amalgam of two small houses published in contemporary architectural publications. Designed and constructed during a period of transition in military residential style, this house represents the drive for modernity while still striving towards pleasant, attractive, and high-quality design. Additionally, Quarters 10 retain a high degree of integrity, and has undergone little change since its original construction.
