Burkhardt Residence

  • Paul planned the house into two units which are separated by a large, shaded patio area in the middle.

  • The patio has a 40 feet long skylight.

  • A L-shaped guest house was added to the property by Architect Toshiko Mori in 1998 and later in 2003, a pavilion was added.

  • It was originally built for Theodore Burkhardt and sold to Ed and Betsy Cohen in 1981, who still own the property as of 2016.
