Anderson House

The Anderson House is an exceptional and rare intact example of Organic Modernism by W. Earl Wear. Designing in the Organic tradition of Frank Lloyd Wright, Wear only designed a handful of residences due to the extraordinary care and craftsmanship he gave to each individual commission. Working with the residence’s current owner, ARG prepared a Los Angeles County Landmark application, Historic Structure Report, and Mills Act application.

Located in Topanga Canyon, the residence is constructed of and clad with old-growth redwood inside
and out, responding beautifully to its canyon environment. The historic property is Los Angeles County
Landmark #5 and the first property in the County to successfully be granted an exemption to the
Mills Act valuation cap.
