Buff & Hensman, FAIA

Hillside Residence, 1979



Sited on a wide double lot on the Eastern rim of Ventura Canyon, the architects Buff & Hensman have inverted a conventional floor plan to maximize the tree top views, and provide direct access to a long lap pool from bright open plan entertainment space. Living Room, Dining Room and Kitchen are one exciting space, divided only by island cabinetry. The bedrooms are on the lower level. Here the classic program of Buff and Hensman’s late celebrated work is exemplified by the massing of cubist forms, and a consummate skill in building the slope.
