The Smith House – Craig Ellwood
Brentwood Mid Century Modern
The Smith House – Craig Ellwood Brentwood Mid Century Modern. Originally completed in 1958, and now meticulously restored under the direction of James Tyler, Ellwood Associate, The Smith House continues to be a beacon in showcasing mid-century modern architecture.
Widely published, including in the Arts & Architecture magazine, the house’s impact is described by Architectural Review as follows:
“Periodically there comes to light a building that – whatever it’s other merits -seizes the attention by the way it exemplifies or dramatizes some aspect of modern architecture. Such a structure is the hillside house in California by Craig Ellwood.”
The vertical of the “T” shaped plan contains the living and dining areas, separated by a fireplace, providing the most dramatic vantage point for viewing the twinkling city lights and the Pacific Ocean.
Two bedrooms are reserved in the head of the “T”. Featuring five hundred-thirty square feet of decks, for outdoor living and dining, this home is truly breathtaking.
“At night, the Smith House appears to float like a glass box in space.”
