The Dr. and Mrs. George Yuen Residence, Charles Wong, AIA, 1962. Charles Wong’s well-designed post and beam Yuen Residence is a thematic exercise of the burgeoning postwar influence of Japanese design in Southern California. Decidedly different from its neighbors, Wong carefully blends the simplicity of post and beam design inside the house and more complex, intricate details on the outside. Each of these elements are experienced through the thoughtful sheathing of glass walls that surround the property. Solid beams support the tongue and groove wood ceiling of the interior of the house and fenestrated rafter tails are seamlessly extended to the exterior.
