Open House Obsession: Quintessential Richard Dornan Remade in Nichols Canyon $2.2MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 2937 Nichols Canyon Road, Hollywood Hills
When: Sunday, May 7 from 2:0pm-5:00pm
What: A 3-bed, 2-bath home designed by Richard Dornan in 1958 and meticulously restored in 2017 by Studio Tim Campbell. Dornan was a prolific Los Angeles architect who gave his clients emphatically Mid-Century dwellings, site-hugging Post + Beam structures that were full of light and air, scaled for contemporary living. This Nichols Canyon dwelling is no exception, and Campbell has respectfully reworked every aspect of it, including the systems, to be a house for the 21st Century.
The living/dining areas are defined by a walnut scrim and a partially open, entirely new kitchen with walnut cabinets.
What We Love: The term “Zen” gets abused by realtors, but this house has an unmistakable serenity that you don’t often find.
