Matt Kivlin, AIA, Architect :: Mid-Century Modern :: Near the Village's quaint shops and restaurants and even closer to Temescal Canyon's trails, architect Matt Kivlin's home rests on a quiet brook surrounded by eucalyptus and oak trees. Known for designing hillside homes on the Westside of Los Angeles, Kivlin was perhaps better known as a surfing pioneer. His wave riding style and custom surfboard designs earned him Encyclopedia of Surfing's title "California's best wave rider in the late 1940s." In his own home, Kivlin demonstrates mastery of the understated design that popularized the era, using orthogonal volumes, an open plan, glass walls, slender structural members, and running bond masonry. Subsequent owners have brought the property into the new millennium, respecting the original design but updating finishes: black granite, white marble, cantilevered glass railings, stainless-steel kitchen, and European fixtures and fittings. Three bedrooms, two baths, plus an in-law apartment with its own kitchen, bath and separate entry.
