They also designed the home at 7911 Santa Elena Street, taking full advantage of this expansive lot in the hilly portion of Glenbrook Valley and created one of the areas most spectacular vintage modern homes. The house was built in 1955 for the Richardson family. In 1960 the family again engaged the architects to add the second level party lounge.
