A. Quincy Jones, FAIA & Whitney R. Smith, FAIA

The Hamma Residence, 1951


Poised on a promontory in Crestwood Hills, a neighborhood described by Gebhard and Winter in their Los Angeles Architectural Guide as ‘a remarkable social, planning, and architectural development’, the Hamma house was declared Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument No. 797 in 2005, acknowledging its rightful place in the history books as an integral part of modernism’s genesis in Southern California. Refurbished and carefully upgraded by the present owner, it offers archetypical mid-century modern architecture, original details, panoramic city and ocean views, and a brilliant blend of static and dynamic interior spaces, expanded by the addition of a master bedroom suite designed by Chris Peck, AIA, and Sergio A. Zeballos. Includes large Jacuzzi tub in the master bath, energy-saving appliances, photovoltaic solar-electric system, and drought-tolerant plantings echoing landscape architect Garrett Eckbo’s original plant palette.
