The Dr. and Mrs. George Yuen Park Hills Heights
Mid Century Home by Charles Wong, AIA, 1962
The Dr. and Mrs. George Yuen Residence, Charles Wong, AIA, 1962.
Charles Wong’s well-designed Park Hills Heights Mid Century home is a thematic exercise of the expanding postwar influence of Japanese design in Southern California.
Categorically different from its neighbors, Wong carefully blends the simplicity of post and beam design inside the house and more complex, intricate details on the outside.
Each of these elements are skilled through the thoughtful sheathing of glass walls that surround the property.
Solid beams support the tongue and groove wood ceiling of the interior of the house and fenestrated rafter tails are seamlessly extended to the exterior.
All these intricate details are met along the margin of the house as they appear to be delicately balanced over the horizontal ribboning of clerestory windows.
