Pasadena’s Restored Case Study House #10 Asks $3MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 771 South San Rafael Avenue, Pasadena
What: It could be called a member of a very exclusive club. This Case Study House by the father/son architectural team of Kemper Noland and Kemper Noland, Jr was built in 1947 under the auspices of Arts and Architecture Magazine as a way of promoting modernism in the US. Only about 27 were built (this one’s #10) and they’re prized by architecture buffs for their innovations and place in history. This home been extensively buffed and somewhat altered– after being mistreated by previous owners– but still reflects the crisp, radical asthetic of the day, with a multi-level structure that steps down the site and includes a pool house/studio structure.
The luminous glass partition and light fixture in the living room are original.
All the baths and the kitchen are recent– not “period” but well-suited to the design.
Case Study Links: The Case Study House Program was incredibly influential in advancing Modernism in the US, plus have a look at Curbed LA’s post on this property when it last came on the market.
