Case Study House #28 [1966]

Buff & Hensman

Imagery: Julius Shulman

At almost 5000 square feet, Case Study House #28 stands as one of the largest examples in the programme and sprawls over the land with just a single floor. Steel framed, this residence is notable for its use of clay brick that serves to conceal much of the structure whose heaviness is masked by a saturation of clerestory glass windows that serves to integrate the courtyards with the interiors. Buff & Hensman’s plan is simple, two rectangles that are divided by a landscaped court and, in turn, linked by enclosed galleries.
