The Malinoff Residence, Robert Malinoff (1958).
Built for his own family while still a student at USC School of Architecture, Malinoff’s design clearly embraces the tenets of his place of study.
Simple materials elevated by their use, a clear expression of structure, and an openness to the outdoors without sacrificing privacy. The home displays a level of sophistication that would make it easy to mistake as having been built by one of his more famous contemporaries.
A recent sympathetic renovation by HabHouse shows their adept skill in recreating period details wherever they have been lost. System and functionality updates have also been made, readying the home for only its third inhabitant since built.
An incredibly peaceful and lush Beachwood Canyon setting; well situated for easy access to all of the city, yet seemingly a world away from it.
