Our featured home today is the long time residence of Hal Thiederman and his wife Elivia. Hal was an integral part of Clarence Mayhew’s firm for many years, eventually becoming a partner. He was responsible for a good deal of Mayhew’s later modernist output including some truly inventive Kaiser hospitals. When it came time to remodel his own home his designs were no less creative, adding a large central lantern in the living room and later a rooftop observatory. The home is a lasting testament to the immense talent of a designer who for many years worked behind the scenes and so is not so well known today as some of his contemporaries.

  1. Sublime, indeed it looks like a nestled home in the hillside with an ultra comfortable interior and landscape surroundings of manicured care.
