Thomson Residence midcentury modern by Buff, Straub & Hensman

Winner of Pasadena‘s 2012 Preservation Award, the residence is located on a hillside lot in the Poppy Peak Historic District in the San Rafael Hills neighborhood.

Along with all new systems, including plumbing, electrical, roof, and zoned HVAC, virtually every surface was restored or rebuilt to exacting detail. LA Times says former owners, Christophe Burusco and Scott Lander of historic preservation firm Lander Design, “carefully erased the wear-and-tear of five decades, returning the home once photographed by Julius Shulman to its Midcentury origins.”

The three bedroom, three bathroom soaring 2-story glass and wood structure features board-and-batten walls, white Formica counters along with a Sub-Zero refrigerator and Miele appliances in the kitchen, cork-tile flooring, a brick fireplace, Shoji sliding screens, redwood decks, and stunning San Gabriel Mountain and city views.

Widely published, the home is an important example of the Case Study architects’ early post and beam work and comes with the added perk of Mills Act tax savings for its next lucky owner.
