Clair Philip Earl, AIA, The Allan F. Daily Residence, 1954. Our milieu has changed and our narrative of home, work, and school has shifted from outward acts and experiences to inward introspection, functionality, adaptability, and sustainability. The Daily Residence, secluded atop a promontory point in Glendale's modernist haven of Whiting Woods, provides a tangible solution to meet the needs of our new narrative of living, working, and learning. Landmarked and holding a Mills Act contract providing substantial property tax savings, the house has commanding views of the San Gabriel Mountains and Crescenta Valley. Official records of the house indicate three bedrooms and two bathrooms, though one bedroom has been reconfigured to create an en suite, master bath which could easily be returned to its original footprint. Glass walls, two fireplaces, workable front and rear yards with published landscaping by Kathleen Ferguson, and updated systems add to the value of the house. Lastly, California's burgeoning postwar car culture plays a prominent role in the design of the house as the oversized carport, suitable for any 1950s-era dagmarred car, provides a kind reminder of the Golden Age of consumerism and, at the same time, frames Earl's brilliant work as though it should be prominently displayed in a museum devoted solely to architecture.
