Googie was a style of architecture that was seen from the 1940s into the 1960s, with the same derived from a coffee shop designed by John Lautner. Essentially it is architecture influenced by space and the future as seen from the era. So upswept roofs, angles, curves. Think something like The Jetsons, for example. It was a big thing when it came to coffee houses, motels and gas stations, but less so with residential architecture. This place is one surviving example of the latter.
