Architect Gene Zema (born 1926) designed for school teacher Myra Lupton and her husband, Homer. The Lupton House was featured as a "Seattle Times/AIA House of the Month" in 09/1961 and was subsequently voted "House of the Year" for 1961. Glen Hunt produced the landscape design.

As of 01/16/2012, the Luptons have lived in this residence since it was built in 1961. DOCOMOMO WeWA presented a tour of the Lupton House on 03/17/2012.
