    Default Mod Men

    Todd Goddard and Andrew Mandolene have a spring in their step since completing their restoration of the near-derelict 1957 home of architect Arthur Witthoefft, who says, “I can’t get over what they’ve done—–it’s unbelievable.”



    The entry, during renovation.


    The outside before renovation


    With the exception of the front door and its adjacent glazing, all of the glass sliders and their frames were torn out and replaced.


    The living room, with vintage furnishings by Harry Bertoia, Paul McCobb, and others, overlooks the heavily wooded site, which adjoins a protected watershed. Goddard and Mandolene replaced the original tile floor with a glossy coat of resin and restored the original ceiling.


    “On a bright day, you have to wear sunglasses in here,” Mandolene says. A freestanding travertine-and-steel fireplace, open on all four sides, divides the living and dining areas.






    All of the glazing along the house’s 95-foot-long western elevation can be opened to the out of doors.

    It is ok for a 50's glass box house. And the interior decor fits the house.

    But that front landscaping? THE HORROR!!!!!

    That's some really fabulous 50s modern! I'd have to have some kind of shutters available in that main room because no way do I want to wear sunglasses in my own house...but apart from that, this is brilliant. It reminds me of an amazing Eichler house in SoCal I once spent an evening in--actually, that place was even better, if you can imagine. They had the original gorgeous floors and back patio/swimming pool, and the central atrium design was fascinating. But this is a marvelous home and I love the furniture and decor sooooo much! The setting is also perfect--like the exactly correct setting for a beautiful jewel. I can't believe that woodland view....*sigh*
