A Japanese-Inspired Post & Beam by Ray Kappe Lists in Los Angeles

By Claire Carponen

SCI-Arc founder Ray Kappe brings together post-and-beam construction and Japanese modernism in this Los Angeles property, which has a curved, glass-elevated roof.

Kappe designed the hilltop Sherman Oaks home in 1961 and then rebuilt it in 1996 in its original style after it was destroyed in the 1994 Northridge earthquake. The two-bedroom Meyer Residence is on sale for $2.395m with Deasy Penner Podley.

Clad in redwood, the 3,000 sq ft California property has a raised central roof that arcs over the building to create high ceilings and a double carport to the front.

Inside, it is light and cozy, with brick walls, extensive timber beams and glazed elevations that wrap around an outdoor pool.
