Ray Kappe has long been a cult figure in the architectural scene in and around Los Angeles. In 1972, he founded the influential, avant-garde Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-ARC). The film traces the trajectory of Kappe's career and examines why the architect, born in 1927, is at the forefront of prefabricated, sustainable design today.

Builder Joseph Eichler brought high end modern design to suburban subdivisions. From 1950 through the mid-seventies his company built 11,000 affordable architect-designed homes in California. Steve Jobs credited the builder as a design inspiration for Apple. ““Eichler did a great thing,” he told his biographer Walter Isaacson, “I love it when you can bring really great design and simple capability to something that doesn't cost much.” It all began in 1942 when Eichler, after living in a rented Frank Lloyd Wright home in the San Francisco Bay Area, commissioned Lloyd Wright disciple Robert Anshen to design something similar for himself. His $100,000 home never got built and instead the two began work on $10,000 modern tract homes with floor-to-ceiling glass walls, skylights and radiant-heated floors. Over the following decades Eichler’s homes became a large part of the “California modern” movement and today many have rediscovered the elegant simplicity of Eichler living.
Klopf Architecture was challenged to design Atrium House, an Eichler-inspired 21st-Century, energy efficient new home that would replace a dilapidated 1940s home for a family of three in Belmont, California. Klopf and the owners planned a home that is modern, connected to nature at every turn, simple, and modular with a sense of composure, restfulness, and highly energy efficient.
The home follows the gentle slope of the hillside while the overarching post-and-beam roof provides an unchanging datum line. The changing moods of nature animate the house because of views through large glass walls at nearly every vantage point. Every square foot of the house remains close to the ground creating and adding to the sense of connection with nature.
