The Barn: A. Quincy Jones

The former home and studio of mid-century modern architect A. Quincy Jones, known as “the Barn” was originally designed as a photographer’s studio in 1950. Located at 10300 Santa Monica Blvd, the traditional wood building was remodeled by Jones in 1965 after his home burned down in a hillside fire. In 2008, Elaine Kollins Sewell Jones, the famed architect’s widow, put the residence on the market, where it sat until November 2009 when it sold for $2M to the Annenberg Foundation, ensuring the Barn’s preservation and restoration.
