Gregory Ain, Architect. Garrett Eckbo, Landscape Architect. First time on the market for this Mid Century Modern house: The Tufeld Residence, 1953.
Ain explored social issues through his progressive views with an emphasis on the flexible use of work, leisure and outdoor space planned to circulate activities throughout the house, & technology to facilitate daily living.
Shortly after moving in, Adrienne Tufeld wrote a relative: “The house is as modern as tomorrow…it has a freezer, dishwasher, and garbage disposal.”
Postwar, these appliances, and the Television were badges of modern living. Designed for voice actor Richard Tufeld and his family, Ain’s social living plan is cohesively integrated with Garrett Eckbo’s abstract garden landscape.
Vistas of the Hollywood Hills are framed within the house. Eckbo’s oval pool, set within a wide circular pattern incorporating lawn and hardscape, presents contrasting geometries to Ain’s rectilinear architecture.
Most all original historic fabric remains intact & in good condition.
