Raymond Kappe - Canna Road
Architect: Ray Kappe - 1967
Location: Brentwood, CA
Built by architect Ray Kappe, this Mid Century Modern home is a historical cultural masterpiece preserved by Kristin’s client who resided in this house for many years.
Her client is somewhat of an iconic figure himself in the community of Los Angeles, highly-regarded for purchasing many architecturally significant homes that have fallen into disrepair and rescuing them from being torn down or remodeled away from their authenticity. He restores these homes to their original specification and registers them as historical monuments under the Mills Act.
Kristin Kilmer designed the interiors of 6 of these monuments alongside her client and considers it one her greatest, most humbling privileges to work with such an inspiring individual, who in her opinion really embodies an often-overlooked area of sustainable design: historical preservation.
It has been effortless co-creating with the client as he trusts the creative process and allows Kristin the freedom to really get inside the heads of the architect and client to bring out their vision while respecting the integrity of the structure and its surrounding environment.
