Thompson Mosley House originally designed by Buff, Straub & Hensman in 1959 is a classic post and beam house with the unique distinction of receiving two merit awards from the A.I.A. with a thirty year interval. The architects talent for best use of the site is evident here, choosing the orientation and views to give great openness and complete privacy in a city lot only a few blocks from a shopping area.
Restored and updated with Conrad and Don and designer Bob Moore in 1989 and again recently by Space International: “While the main structure and floor plan retains its essential integrity, a new “interior core” is inserted along the central spine of the house. This new hub is accentuated by natural materials which compliment the interior connections to the outdoor spaces defined by the pinwheel plan of the residence.”
