Discussion with Andreas Larsson, owner and founder of HabHouse.

An early example of the Mutual Housing Association homes of Crestwood Hills -- unique not only for its architectural pedigree, but also for having been the only successful housing cooperative in the state of California. Conceived of by four studio musicians returning from WWII, who had devised a plan to pool the resources of multiple owners and develop a community of modern homes. Fewer of the homes were built than originally envisioned, and unfortunately fewer still remain intact. One more has now been added to that list of remaining homes.

This is the latest project by HabHouse, which has built its reputation on sensitive rehabilitations of architectural properties. Each one is a labor of love -- resurrecting a Los Angeles treasure that would have previously been considered lost to decades of ill-advised remodels and neglect.

The home was featured prominently in Julius Shulman's 1950 photography of the neighborhood demonstrating how the architects deftly oriented the siting of each house to maximize privacy. With this, extensive walls of glass are able to embrace the surrounding landscape and horizon view.
