Edward H. Fickett, FAIA | Nichols Canyon
Pioneering American modernist architect Edward H. Fickett, FAIA who “made many contributions to his community and the people of this great state.” (Gov. Gray Davis) brings his regional perspective to this residence emphasizing openness, light and an effortless flow of living spaces. Expansive floor to ceiling windows not only connect the residents to the landscape, outdoor living area and swimming pool but also flood the interior with natural light. Typical of Fickett’s innovative work in residential design, the home boasts post-and-beam ceilings, clerestories and skylights and exposed brick. Carefully and strikingly updated yet faithful to the integrity and simplicity of Fickett’s original aesthetic, this home stands composed in the present while celebrating its midcentury past. An exceptional property of definite architectural significance for the cognoscenti seeking Southern California living and design at its finest.
