Yesterday, my wife Donna and I went on our usual afternoon walk around the neighborhood. Our destination was the LOS FELIZ ESTATES, developed by Harlan Lee and Associates in the mid 1960s . The homes in the area reflect the architecture of the times, for the most part single story, south-facing homes designed to take particular advantage of the panoramic views of the city. In the mix I found a few spectacular homes like this one. Note the many tall windows and dramatic roof line.
Buff & Hensman associate Architect Roger designed the classic post-and-beam house for his mother in 1968. The architect drew on Asian traditions and his training at the University of Southern California School of Architecture. Located at 5146 West Los Franciscos in the Los Feliz Estates neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Craftsman Style, a set on Flickr.
For the past couple of weeks I have been concentrating on photographing Craftsman style houses for an upcoming article I have been asked to write for the "Los Feliz Observer". The article will be the first in a series highlighting the development of our neighborhood from 1900 until the present day.
