Poured-in-place concrete walls. Glued laminated Douglas fir beams. A galvanized steel roof. Hasell's new house is the work of an unabashed modernist, one who served as project architect for Quiksilver's headquarters in Huntington Beach and who embraces the Southern California architecture pioneered by Rudolph Schindler and Richard Neutra. The house is built on a steep slope that previous owners deemed unbuildable. Two upper wings are connected by a spine; a second level unfolds on the lower part of the property.
