New to market in Mt Washingtong is The Donald and Dolores Hamilton Residence, 1961, Kazuo Umemoto, Architect. Set back from the street for maximum privacy, the living spaces are lifted above the private drive to allow light and views across the city from its private hillside setting. From the small body of work discovered thus far, it seems likely that Kazuo Umemoto fully mastered the now classic post and beam glass house style pioneered by the U. S. C. School of Architecture just after the war. Inside, roof beams project through the living room and out beyond the front glass wall, focusing one’s view out to the San Gabriel Mountain vistas.
The back glass wall affords views to the pool and patio with an additional elevated garden area. This light-filled living environment carefully integrates three bedrooms and three bathrooms, original lighting and window shades, pool, patio, and gardens. This one should not be missed.
