A. Quincy Jones & Frederick E. Emmons – X-100, 1586 Lexington Ave. San Mateo, CA – 1956   Leave a comment

According to the CA Modernist, Dave Weinstein, over at the Eicher Network, the X-100 is likely to be placed on the National Register this April. It is being restored by its owner, Marty Arbunich, Eichler Network director and CA-Modern magazine publisher. So, we should see it looking a lot like you see it here.

Edward (Ted) Grenzbach – Staude Residence (1960)   Leave a comment

From Wiehle-Carr: Set far back from the street, this superior two-story modern residence was designed for a sculptor (EV Staude) and her husband by one of LA’s premier architects of the post World War 2 period. A working studio at the rear of the property by Frank Lloyd Wright-influenced designer Ted van Fossen had preceded the house, as had the 20′ x 40′ swimming pool near the front, and its garden setting. Flood damage was the impetus for the present owner to embark on a wide-ranging revival of original interior and exterior features and revamping for fittings, finishes, and furnishings of all main rooms and baths.
