Buff & Hensman, FAIA

Domus Solaris, 1975


That the life-enhancing exhilarating power of great architecture has nothing to do with size is proven & experienced here at Domus Solaris. Carefully drawn across the highest ridge above Mulholland, Don Hensman’s personal residence each day recalls the experience of ascending the mountain. Access appears blocked from below, but then through a hidden cleft, stairs lead upward. The pool, like a small lake at the base of the summit is crossed over by a bridge. There is pristine shelter at the top, with panoramic views of the Valley, Hollywood through the broad Nichols Canyon, and the Pacific Ocean beyond. Interiors are one space for living indoors-outdoors in freedom and privacy on top of the world, and beneath the Sun. One of Los Angeles’ most desirable hideaways is now available for sale.
