Altadena House Kenneth Gordon, Robert Gordon AIA, 1949

here are some pics of our house, which we bought in 1997, and have been restoring and tweaking ever since. the cantilevered addition was done by another architect, tim anderson, in the seventies. the pool house is a converted horse barn. the bathroom and shade structure were designed by fung and blatt architects a ferw years ago. the design won a pasadena aia award for best renovation.

i am not happy with the white color and am searching fort the best replacement.

I remember seeing this in a magazine a couple years ago. If you are unhappy with the white, perhaps a light taupe (closer to a warm gray) might please you.

great house, love the original details.

it was featured in one of the first issues of atomic ranch, also the pool house was in sunset and los angeles magazines.

thanks for the warm grey suggestion. that's one of my top three considerations...

thanks-

maybe tweaking is not the proper word. we have tried to bring out the best qualities of the house, unify the the older part of the design with the later 70s addition, and correct mistakes that were made along the way. the majority of the work was in the guest house, which really was a blank slate, since it was simply an empty horse barn when we bought the place.

grey green is on the list, too!
