The Schaffer Residence, 1949.

The Schaffer Residence, 1949.

Hidden in a wooded valley at the foot of the Verdugo Mountains, the redwood, concrete & glass residence opens to the oak forest that influenced the form and orientation of the design. A meticulous restoration of systems, as well as surfaces, hardware & appliances has been completed. This published, world class architectural treasure incorporates open plan living, dining and den areas, two bedrooms, one & a half baths, laundry and attached two carport. In nature and apart, yet just 15 minutes to downtown Los Angeles.

In the Jura sensitive zone a dilapidated Stöckli is rückgebaut and rebuilt with the involvement of local designs on the site. The Stöckli is free-standing in farmland and adjacent to an old Roman road along the rising edge of a Jura fold. The external appearance is to be modeled on existing agricultural building and simply pasting and convincing demonstration of the landscape. The result of this work is visually, technically and economically a building ausTannenholz.
