The duo met while attending USC’s School of Architecture. LA Conservancy writes they “were already designing hundreds of affordable tract homes for a prominent California builder before starting their own practice, Buff & Hensman (1952-1957).”
Sited on a large and private street-to-street lot in Nichols Canyon the residence stays true to their classic post and beam, wood and glass design aesthetic we’ve seen in the Wong House and Case Study House #20 and #28.
The exterior features cantilevered overhangs that shade the concrete paths and other outdoor areas.
Walls of glass frame the surrounding lush green scenery and sliding glass doors create a seamless flow to the outdoor areas that feature a rectangular shaped pool with a spa.
This Buff & Hensman last exchanged hands in 1998 for $487,000. It’s now listed for $1.385 million.
