Description:
Harwell Hamilton Harris was unique among early American modernist architects. He was a rare native grown American star working around European émigré wunderkind designers, and he concentrated on perfecting a modern regional architecture. Trained by Richard Neutra, yet influenced heavily by Frank Lloyd Wright, H.H. Harris designed houses that fit comfortably into the Californian landscape.Our rare and significant offering is a striking example of H.H. Harris at his early simple best. There is a zen quality to the design and landscaping. Harris believed that the architect worked from the inside out, and here he arranged compositions of box-like masses juxtaposed in surprising ways. Walls of glass and an almost Japanese simplicity define the public rooms with banks of one-lite French doors, transforming the house into a modernist pavilion. The outdoor terraces extend the living spaces into nature itself, and there is a wonderful entertaining and dining area adjacent to the kitchen. On the lower floor there are two bright and well-proportioned bedrooms, and a generous bathroom. The views are verdant and serene and encompass the Lake, John Lautner’s “Silvertop”, and even the Griffith Observatory and the Hollywood Sign.
