The Johnson Residence, 1953



One of the greatest challenges in preservation is encountered when attempting to improve an iconic residence to accommodate contemporary living without degrading the period ambience that makes a building great to begin with. Many fail. The Johnson House improvements are a resounding success. From the new terrazzo flooring, kitchen, baths, & built-ins, to the addition of a swimming pool and outdoor entertainment deck, carefully curated new elements reference Ellwood’s modernism without compromising it. Here, architecture, pool, and City views out to the Pacific Ocean combine to offer the celebrated California lifestyle with comfort, and without compromise.
