Home of the Day: Reimagined Buff & Hensman in Agoura Hills

Designed by Midcentury firm Buff & Hensman, this 1960s post-and-beam was reinterpreted by local architect Jay Vanos, who raised the ceilings while adding skylights and clerestory windows to the home. Clean lines, wood built-ins and cement board floors lend a polished look to 3,700 square feet of open space. Rows of floor-to-ceiling glass take in mature trees, a covered patio and a detached art studio/guest house.
