New life for Greta Magnusson Grossman’s glass-walled residence in Beverly Hills

Grossman Home in Beverly Hills
Greta Magnusson Grossman built this 1948 house in Beverly Hills as a quietly dramatic showcase of her skills as an architect and designer of interiors, furniture and lighting.

Though she worked in the shadows of midcentury contemporaries such as Rudolph Schindler and Richard Neutra, Grossman maintains a following 10 years after her death — including designer Darryl Wilson, pictured, who bought the home three years ago and recently finished remodeling and expanding it with architect Tony Unruh. The goal: to reconcile the house’s past with its future, modernizing it in a way that Grossman might have done herself.
