Built in 1959 by the award-winning firm Buff, Straub & Hensman—the creators of more than 300 houses throughout Southern California in their heyday—the Thompson Moseley House in San Marino, California, is a stellar example of midcentury post-and-beam architecture. In 2009, the home was thoughtfully restored by Space International, who stayed true to the architects’ original intent.
