This pre-fabricated “tilt-up” house — constructed of fourteen six-inch thick concrete slabs brought to the site and tilted up into place — was designed to take maximum advantage of its narrow lot while buffering its inhabitants from the immediately adjacent alley. The Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles deems it a “beautiful rendition of the revival of the International Style.”
