Classic Post and Beam Design, 1955
1300 Monument Street, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272
Pollack & Kahn Engineers

From the body of work discovered thus far, it is clear that Pollack & Kahn fully mastered the now classic post & beam glass house style pioneered by the U.S.C. School of Architecture just after the war. Their work seems most closely aligned with that of Richard Dorman's designs of the period. The living spaces are lifted, and set above the carport to allow maximum light and views from the close-in hillside setting. Inside, a prominent roof beam projects through the living room and out beyond the glass wall, focusing one???s view out to the treetop vistas, with a glimmer of the ocean just beyond. Rare, especially in the Palisades, this light filled living environment carefully integrates 3 bedrooms 2 baths, outdoor patio, and gardens.
