Part of our journey involved saving a historic house in Los Angeles from the wrecking ball. We spent 3 years doing a museum quality restoration, doing most of the work ourselves. We successfully petitioned City Hall & won Landmark Designation for our home, protecting it for generations to come. Our house was designed by an amazing group of Architects & Designers led by A. Quincy Jones. You might notice some John Lautner & Frank Llyod Wright in the bones! The lead draftsmen, Jim Charlton, was one of Frank Llyod Wright's top apprentices & he work-studied for his education, helping out at the schools (Taliesin) & farms that supported them. He worked under Lautner, who was originally in charge of the design, but then moved over to Jones's team after a domestic entanglement between Lautner & his Boss's wife! Chartlon also studied under Lautner during the building of Frank Llyod Wright's Sturges house on our same mountain. Our home is part of a greater community called The Crestwood Hills. It was one of the 1st homes built by this design team. We live in a sad time for these beautiful homes. The property values in Los Angeles & confluence of uneducated or insensitive international buyers results in the destruction of our cultural heritage. We hope this video will help share our appreciation for American Modernist Architecture & perhaps convince more people to save these homes instead of building large soulless stucco boxes and imprisoning themselves from the indoor/outdoor California Lifestyle.
