About this House - Architect and Renovation:
This home was carefully restored to capture the look and feel of its original William Krisel design. Originally completed in 1957 by the Alexander Construction Company, this home is known as the "Gable."
The renovation team worked closely with Mr. Krisel during the remodel and restoration of this exciting mid-century modern home. The team consulted his archives, now at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, attempting to return the home to the look and feel that it had when first completed. The floor plan, a masterpiece of space planning, continues to work beautifully for today's lifestyle.
The cabinetry in the kitchen and baths is based upon Mr. Krisel's designs as originally installed in the home, but now finished in luxurious walnut. The cabinet hardware and sliding peg-board doors are the same as specified in 1957.
On the exterior, the home is finished in an original color scheme specified by Mr. Krisel. Carefully researched from the files of the now defunct O'Brien Paint Company and correctly applied as originally specified in Mr. Krisel's paint call out sheet, the colors of Persian Grey, Off White and Apricot Glow with trim of Weathered Brown blend together beautifully and simultaneously give the home a warm vintage feel, but still thoroughly fresh for today.
Mr. Krisel has personally created the landscaping for this project. A student of the great landscape architect Garrett Eckbo, Mr. Krisel's design creates a Mondrian-esque painting out of rock, cactus and lawn drawing your eye to the lines and features of the house.
Come enjoy and celebrate architecture as a destination!
