Buff, Straub & Hensman, FAIA

Poppy Peak Residence


Carefully maintained in nearly original condition since new, this classic example of Buff, Straub and Hensman’s glassy thin-line post and beam style invites living the now celebrated California indoor-outdoor lifestyle. The residence is sited on the North Slope of the San Rafael Hills within Pasadena’s Poppy Peak Historic District, and was planned for dramatic views across the City, while framing the San Gabriel Mountains through two story glass. As with their Roth and Thomson Residences, the interior open plan public space opens directly to the outdoor entertainment area and hillside gardens. Residence incorporates a double car port with convenient elevator to the ground floor.
