This house is an early example of the Mutual Housing Association homes of Crestwood Hills. As part of one of the only housing cooperatives in the state of California it is one of the few houses, which survived. It was rehabilitated and renovated by HabHouse, a Los Angeles based firm, which is known for its sensitive approach to make it inhabitable today. The distinctive sloping roofline with integral carport has been brought back as well as Douglas fir plywood built-ins, clear heart redwood tongue and groove siding, and exposed aggregate concrete block. The home was featured prominently in Julius Shulman's 1950 photography of the neighborhood demonstrating how the architects deftly oriented the siting of each house to maximize privacy. With this, extensive walls of glass are able to embrace the surrounding landscape and horizon view.
In collaboration with Modern California House.
