For Sale...


"First offering: The Kawahara Residence, 1969. This iconic masterwork composed in steel and glass, with its refined detailing, clearly achieves Ellwood's stated objective of 'beauty through order'. The residence is a literal embodiment of the Miesian aphorism 'Less is More'." ~see full listing @ Crosby Doe Associates.

Craig Ellwood (April 22, 1922 – May 30, 1992) was an influential Los Angeles-based modernist architect whose career spanned the early 1950s through the mid-1970s. Although untrained as an architect, Ellwood fashioned a persona and career through equal parts of a talent for good design, self-promotion and ambition. He was recognized professionally for fusing of the formalism of Mies van der Rohe with the informal style of California modernism.~wikipedia
