Mixed Use Complex
290 Townsend Street
Mixed Use Complex: Contemporary 2 + bedroom and 4 bedroom penthouse plus commercial space. Born of controversy but now celebrated, the creative vision of New York architects Smith-Miller and Hawkinson and dogged persistence of the owner expanded this resort town’s vision of compatibility within its National Historic District. Using the vernacular of Telluride’s mining and commercial buildings rather than the traditional foursquare late Victorian, and Gothic revival residences which predominate, a dynamic space for modern living and working has been achieved. Here at Plunge Landing, just steps from the gondola, the residence is elevated over its commercial space thus allowing
Phillip Jon Brown, A.I.A.
Flynn Ranch "House A", 1987
7740 Flynn Ranch Road
Los Angeles, CA
While the fate of Modernism was being debated in the press, U.S.C. & M.I.T. schooled architect Phil Brown planned a private enclave of modern estates for the historic Errol Flynn Ranch. There were to be 4 modern residences accessed by a gated private drive, each carefully sited for privacy in relation to the park-like landscaped environment. Ultimately only two were completed; "House A" was the first, and remains the purest statement of the architect's intent. With its proximity to the studios, the residence was planned from the inside out to suit the needs of the entertainment industry executive: the wide front door invites as it pivots open to a virtual promenade entry

Tom Kundig, Architect
Studio House, 1997
970 NW Elford Drive
The Studio House stands as Tom Kundig’s breakthrough project – one that brought him in contact with a patron who was excited to experiment with raw materials in creating an interactive dwelling that was "rooted in the past, yet predictive of the future." Intentionally rustic and proven materials, such as structural steel and concrete are celebrated for the strength and connection to the elements that they provide, yet spaces are carefully edited, adhering to the disciplined, modernist line that has come to define Kundig’s work.
The strict massing of the structure and meticulous sighting are gleefully contrasted with playfully interactive and industrial
