Craig Ellwood, Designer

Lamar & Johnson Residence, 1952

Sold

Description

he Johnsons, sole owners of the house since Craig Ellwood built it for them, are among the pioneer patrons of mid-century modernism. Here, against the chaparral of the Santa Monica Mountains, and working with the same 8-foot module and paneled ‘floating walls’ utilized in his Case Study House of the same year, Ellwood draws the residence horizontally across the slope, foreshadowing his later Art Center. Wood ceiling beams, precisely fitted into the steel frame, carry the eye out to dramatic views of city and coastline. The elegantly detailed glass-walled space incorporates: open-plan living area, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, studio, & carport.
