Case Study architect Craig Ellwood designed this pavilion-like Pasadena property for the president of the Art Center College of Design in 1965.
Don and Sally Kubly tapped Ellwood to design their family home after becoming enraptured with his Case Study designs. The Pasadena home is now offered for sale for the first time via Jacob Matthes of Crosby Doe Associates for $3m.
Kubly House encapsulates many of Ellwood’s signatures. The Pasadena property is essentially a glass pavilion that floats above its 0.6-acre plot, but instead of his typical steel frame, Kubly House is built with wood and glass (a budgetary consideration.)
Ellwood opted for a zonal floorplan, putting the kitchen at the core to buffer the living spaces and four bedrooms.
