John Kewell, AIA

The Schipper Residence, 1952

Sold

Description

Gold Medal winner John Kewell, AIA likely met Merle Schipper, who was an art critic, writer, and curator, through their mutual academic associations. Although Kewell is best known for his larger projects such as a masterplan for Cal Tech, his design for Merle’s hillside site in Westwood, which is easy walking distance from U.C.L.A., is a classic of the period. Merle did much of her work at home so a plan was developed to accommodate living and working. Privacy, space and light are the hallmarks of this post-war open plan residence for art, work and entertaining. Careful updating and revisions by architects Jared Levy and Jeff Allsbrook, AIA add high quality 21st century amenities to a timeless mid-century lifestyle. Residence includes: 3 bedrooms, studio, 4 baths, lower level guest/maid’s room, bath with a separate entry, and detached two car garage.
