This incredible home was moved to the Poppy Peak Historic District in 1951 by Leland Evison to avoid demolition during the construction of the 134 Freeway.

Harris’s two-story, hillside design is an expression of modern architecture that incorporates minimalist aesthetics with the modern ranch.

Evison’s relocation of the de Steiguer Residence to Poppy Peak further expands on Harris’s interpretation of the California hacienda or ranch.

The western-facing, modest profile and low-pitched roof blend seamlessly into the hillside setting resulting an unassuming exercise of unpretentious pre-war housing. The east-facing rear side of the house is expressed through the horizontal ribboning of large windows and doors on the main level.

The first floor level utilizes volume of glass walls and doors over horizontality as a means of denuding the separation between inhabitants and the built environment. The result is an articulation and seamless dialogue between indoor and outdoor living.
