Roger Kennedy design with Bernard Zimmerman, FAIA
The Kennedy Residence + Studio, 1970
11470 Laurelcrest Rd., Studio City, CA
The genius of Roger Kennedy's work in residential architecture is not well known; he only designed three houses for himself and his wife Lois. Each is iconic, & adds important vocabulary to the language of modernist design, but all are secluded in private hillside enclaves with such careful siting in nature that they become invisible in plain sight. House #3 is Kennedy's most daring. Here he encloses his dynamic open plan live/work spaces within a precise solid brick shell dramatically cantilevered into the panoramic view. Approached down a private drive within a lush hillside garden, the residence's loft-like living space comprises one bedroom & bath, eat-in kitchen

Contemporary Realization, 2003

This remarkable contemporary realization is the work of the architect Pierre Fauroux. Between minimalism of the forms and strong expression of materials (concrete, glass, varnished red wood, slate of Angers for the ground), this "swimming pool-house" impresses through its balance and its serenity.
