1990 by David Hertz and Michael Rendler

This “block cut open to the light,” as the architects describe the house, has had that light severely impinged upon by larger, adjacent structures built after it. You have to get in there and peek under the surrounding vegetation to get a sense of the what the architects, who have separate practices, got up to.

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.”
