    Description

    The Killion Residence, Jean G. Killion AIA (1954). A project architect in the offices of Neutra & Alexander from 1952-54, she would likely have had a hand in the design of buildings that we today know well. If not for the nearly impassable barriers that women so often faced in the field of architecture, she may have been a household name. The home she designed and built for herself stands as testament to her immense talent; a dramatic composition of post and beam structure clad in old growth redwood siding that gracefully steps its way down a hillside lot. Ingenuity in siting places the home so that much of the lot is undisturbed, providing for a large & flat garden area private from the street. At the home's center- an 18' ceilinged great room directs walls of glass toward views of Downtown LA & beyond, all the way to Catalina Island. An idyllic setting, located in a quiet & peaceful section of Pasadena+GGs Poppy Peak Historic District. As is their specialty, HabHouse took great care to retain the home's spirit & original intent, sympathetic to the legacy & recognition that Killion's work is surely due. A restoration aimed not only at revitalizing her unique vision, but also at elevating the work of an architect who had until now been left out of the history books.
