This was a wonderful article about beautiful & practical home.
I loved that you included archival photos of the architect enjoying his home. I’ve seen a few of his homes, from the street, it’s nice to see the man himself. :)
I also found the info about the louvered wall and deep overhangs and the reason for their location on the home useful.
I live in a very hot area of Los Angeles, close to this home actually, and we have a slanted pergola that gives us some shade on the south side of our home and shutters on all our windows so we can adjust for light and heat but now this gave me the idea to shade the west side of our home a bit too to keep it cooler.
