Viewpoint is an important example of the architectural work of Judith Chafee, FAIA (1932-1998), considered a master for her contributions to architecture nationally. Designed for her mother, the project provided Chafee the freedom to fully explore her design concepts that she would advance throughout her career. The building is part of Chafee’s foundational work that boldly and clearly express the tenets of her design philosophy and embodies the characteristics of Critical Regionalism. During and after construction, Viewpoint was recognized locally and nationally for its design including being featured on the cover of the Los Angeles Times Homes Magazine, March 30, 1975; the cover of House and Garden Building Guide, Spring Summer 1975; featured in Architectural Record, Mid-May 1975 and in the 1979 Architectural Record book Houses of the West.
