This reimagined post-and-beam, with its folding-plate roofline and walls of glass, builds off of what is formally known as the Henbest-Birkett Residence by Pierre Koenig, architect of Case Study House No. 21 and No. 22 fame. A secondary wing, a fountain entry and a pool are among additions made to the property; interior walls and cabinetry were removed to create a more free-flowing space.
