Do you have any information on the house HH Harris designed for Pauline Lowe in Altadena? It's a beautiful little house (I toured it many years ago) but I haven't been able to locate any photos or plans of it. For all I know it may no longer exist.

The Lowe house is still at 596 Punahou Street in Altadena. Like so many of HHH's work, the Lowe house is so unassuming that it's easy to miss.

Thank you Josquin. Your postings of great architecture are a treat for me, and I'm sure for others. Plus, you get great angles of the places you photograph!
