Visiting the Pittman Dowell Residence, for which Hiroshi Tokumaru was the Senior Technical Coordinator and Wil Carson a member of the design team at Michael Maltzan Architecture, located on the same plot as Richard Neutra’s extraordinary 1952 Serulnic Residence, noted critic Mirko Zardini paused, and reflected that of any home he had ever visited, the residence was, for him, the only one that truly embodied what it meant to be contemporary. The home capitalizes on a logic of nested figures around a central courtyard, creating an exceptionally diverse array of experiences and perspectives within a modest footprint. Within the residence, multiple views link interior and exterior, responding to the centrifugal choreography of movement across the site and the dramatic vistas both within, in relationship to Neutra’s adjacent masterpiece, and the vistas stretching across the valley below.
