Charles Wong, AIA built this Japanese inspired mid century modern home for Dr. and Mrs. George Yuen in 1962 located in Los Angeles California. This immaculate kept home is currently on the market. Obviously the house is amazing on the inside but the exterior landscaping matches the impressiveness of the structure as well.
“All of these intricate details are met along the periphery of the house as they appear to be delicately balanced over the horizontal ribboning of clerestory windows. Engawa decking further accentuates the thematic elements of Sukiya-zukuri influence and is clearly reminiscent of Kyoto’s Katsura Imperial Palace in which Walter Gropius described as “a product of sheer vitality uninhibited in its feeling for volume and movement” after his visit there in 1954.” — deasy penner podley
