The Strick House

In 1963, renown Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer designed a home in Santa Monica’s La Mesa Drive for director/filmmaker Joseph Strick and his wife Anne. It is the only house Niemeyer designed in the US (where he was banned because of his leftist political associations). The couple was living in the Gregory Ain-designed Mar Vista Tract when they commissioned Niemeyer whom they never met in person. They loved his work in Brasilia and believed it was wrong that he was not allowed to work in the country for his political views. They communicated via correspondence, while architect Ulrich Plaut handled the working drawings. The couple divorced before the home was complete and was later sold and forgotten. Modern collectors Michael and Gabrielle Boyd acquired the property after the landmarks commission prevented a developer’s planned demolition. They got down to work and the home is now fully restored.
