GREGORY AIN (1908-1988)
MODERNIQUE HOMES, MAR VISTA CA


Designed with Joseph Moore and Alfred Day. Developed by the Avondale Development Company for the Mar Vista Housing Tract. By rotating the floor plan in different directions, the architects were able to create a sense of variation between the houses. Landscape architect Garrett Eckbo planted trees from five continents throughout the neighborhood to create a park-like setting. The development was designated a Los Angeles Historic Preservation Overlay Zone in 2003.
