Mutual Housing Assn. building in Los Angeles' Crestwood Hills
Jones designed 80 private residences in Southern California from the late 1940s to the early 1970s, raising the level of the tract house in California from the simple stucco box to a structure of beauty and logic, surrounded by gardens and integrated into the landscape, writes architect Cory Buckner in her 2002 monograph, A. Quincy Jones. This historic image shows the Mutual Housing Assn. office in a part of L.A. now called Crestwood Hills.
