Mid-century Modern Landmark
218 Sleepy Hollow Road, New Canaan, CT
One of the stars of New Canaan’s legacy of mid-century modernism, the Wiley House, designed by Philip Johnson in the early 1950s, was restored and expanded by Roger Ferris + Partners. Of the six houses Philip Johnson designed in New Canaan, Connecticut, the Wiley house is the only one that contains a singular glass pavilion to rival the volume of his architectural masterpiece, the Glass House. A new pool house built into the hill and the art gallery (a reconstructed 19th century barn) form their own courtyard around the vintage swimming pool with its original diving pad which is a twin to the circular pool at Johnson’s Glass House. For Philip Johnson, this house represented a

The Caverhill Residence, 2008
2500 Briarcrest Road, Beverly Hills, CA
First Offering: There is no artifice in this striking work of architecture. Form, program, and detail are brilliantly resolved to serve the function of modern good living in a private space where indoor-outdoor distinctions disappear at will. Here, Zoltan Pali, F.A.I.A. carefully sites the residence for both mountain and ocean vistas on a wide, flat, private drive atop the highest ridge above Trousdale Estates. At the street, the residence is commanding in the Western architectural tradition, yet paradoxically affords a lifestyle of peaceful living in accord with nature in the Eastern architectural tradition, interpreted for the 21st Century.

Luxurious Villa of Style, 2011
(private address), near Nice , FR
This luxurious villa of style loft arose from the transformation of a former factory of water company by an enthusiast of architecture. The former building metamorphosed into a place of unique and atypical life, a real industrial cathedral where the design furniture is close to the machines of the last century and where styles and materials get married marvelously.
It is located on the Côte d'Azur (French Riviera) between Nice and Monaco, in an idyllic environment close to the Mediterranean Sea.
A swimming pool lined by a beautiful olive tree and surrounded with vegetation precedes the arrival in the house. From the entrance, the gigantic machines of the

Craig Ellwood, Architect
The Daphne Residence, 1961
20 Madrone Place, Hillsborough, CA
Writing on architecture, Craig Ellwood has written: "The real art in architecture is not arbitrary style or ethereal symbolism, but the extent to which a building can evoke pleasure and profound emotion, the extent to which a building can spiritually uplift and inspire men while simultaneously reflecting the logic of the technique that alone can convey its validity to exit." The Daphne Residence achieves these high art goals, conveying serenity by the symmetry of its design, precise detailing, and the subliminal effect of the immediate presence of the reflecting water in the courtyard pool. With its primary visual orientation across the broad expanse of the contiguous Burlingame

The Lydia C. Edmands House, 1917
1233 Wentworth Avenue, Pasadena, CA
Arthur and Alfred Heineman, Architects, 1917. The Lydia C. Edmands House. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998, the Cotswold Cottage built for wealthy widow Lydia C. Edmands exemplified the Heineman brothers' creative tenure during the interpretive Arts and Crafts architectural movement from 1895-1918. The rolled-roof edges, half-timbers, and large eyebrow gable clearly sets the Edmands House apart from its Spanish Colonial and Mediterranean Revival neighbors. The seemingly whimsical design of the cottage displays the Heineman brothers skill at adapting historic styles while simultaneously displaying a sense of folly in their design. Generous common areas on the
