Frederich & Jones, Caspar Ehmcke

The Richard B. Murrow Residence, 1938



First Offering: Design by Frederich & Jones with updates & addition by Caspar Ehmcke, FAIA Murrow, Chief Aerodynamicist for the Hughes ‘Spruce Goose’ project selected a gentle promontory view site West of U.C.L.A. to construct what has become today a rare and desirable example of the Moderne family residence. All the hallmarks of the style are here: graceful interior and exterior proportions, steel framed corner windows, restrained use of rounded corner walls, and fine craftsmanship reflected in the built-in cabinetry, elegant floating spiral stairway, and rich detail. Ehmcke’s careful modifications enhance visual flow to the patio and pool area from the kitchen, and improve traffic flow from the formal living room to the pool. Includes: 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths + maid’s & bath, den, workshop, & attached 2 car garage.
