Originally planned as a personal residence in 1957 by Calvin C. Straub, FAIA. It was during this same period that the partnership of Buff, Straub, and Hensman was formed. Expressing a pragmatism as its own form of artistry, Straub left his own acute signifiers on the Mid-Century architecture movement.
This 1957 Pasadena Mid Century Modern Architectural by Buff, Straub and Hensman home has been featured in numerous television shows, books and architectural tours. Originally built for the Frank Family of Lawry’s Foods, it was once owned by Beck.
