Robert E. Langdon Jr., A.I.A.
First offering in nearly 50 years! The Langdon Residence, Robert Langdon, Jr., AIA. The fundamentals of U.S.C.'s modernist architectural tradition are evidenced in the architect's own home, which he built while serving as Assistant Architect for the University. With a south-east corner site the residence obtains an expansive & private estate-like feeling. Respecting the existing natural beauty, Langdon carefully set the residence beneath the old oaks on the site. The now classic open plan living-dining space opens through an Arcadia door to the garden & pool. Glass walls bring the garden indoors. A Wrightian tadpole configuration of the 3 bedroom & 2 bath living space is modified by the addition of the architect's office at the entry between the attached garage. With the exception of a hall closet being combined into an adjoining bath, the residence presents today as originally built, and continues to afford the most desirable California lifestyle of living within a garden setting.
