1950s Richard Neutra-designed Hammerman House in Los Angeles, California

Something very special, with the Richard Neutra-designed Hammerman House in Los Angeles, California now on the market. The house actually dates back to 1954. I know. It really doesn’t give that impression. That’s perhaps because the house has been updated along the way. The agent describes this as ‘impeccably maintained’ and we would guess the […]

1960s midcentury modern: Henry Hills-designed property in El Cerriro, California, USA

From the turn of this particular decade comes the 1960s Henry Hills-designed midcentury modern property in El Cerriro, California, USA you see here. Quite something too, although its originality in places is perhaps open to question. Architecturally, I suspect little has changed since 1960. This is a wonderful piece of MCM in an equally wonderful […]

John Lautner finds are always popular, none more so than the Willard Whyte house in the James Bond movie Diamonds Are Forever. This isn’t quite to that level, but it is rather special. The […]

1950s midcentury modern: Paul Tay-designed Strum Residence in Long Beach, California, USA

First time on the market for the 1950s Paul Tay-designed Strum Residence in Long Beach, California, USA. Yet despite the house being in the same family for the best part of 60 years, this one looks surprisingly fresh and – dare I say it – almost contemporary. Maybe it’s that Orla Kiely duvet cover. Or […]

1950s modernism: Donald and Helen Olsen House in Berkeley, California, USA

First time on the market for the Donald and Helen Olsen House in Berkeley, California, USA. That’s quite something too considering the house dates back to 1955. It’s actually the architect’s own home too, as well as a property on the National Register of Historic Places. So quite a pedigree. Has it changed? Well, yes […]

1960s midcentury modern: Dick E. Lowry-designed property in Los Angeles, California, USA

Originality is the name of the game with this 1960s Dick E. Lowry-designed midcentury modern property in Los Angeles, California, USA. The house dates back to 1961, sat in half an acre of ‘forest-like’ land and still largely unchanged in 55+ years. So much to appreciate here, including the walls of glass, the wood exterior […]
