Ocean View! Craig Ellwood/James Tyler FAIA. Originally completed in 1958, and now restored under the guidance of James Tyler, Ellwood Associate, The Smith House continues to be a beacon in showcasing mid-century modern architecture. Widely published, including Arts & Architecture magazine, the house’s impact is described by Architectural Review as follows: “Periodically there comes to light a building that – what – ever it’s other merits -seizes the attention by the way it exemplifies or dramatizes some aspect of modern architecture. Such a structure is the hillside house in California by Craig Ellwood.” The vertical of the “T” shaped plan contains the living and dining area, divided by a fireplace, providing the most dramatic vantage point for viewing the coastal city lights and pacific ocean. The 2 bedrooms are retained in the head of the “T”. 530 square feet of decks, for outdoor living and dining. “At night, the Smith House appears to float like a glass box in space.”
