The Penny and Stanley Haptor Residence, 1987, Buff and Hensman, FAIA. Author P. D. James writes: "Privacy is the last luxury;" and with its gated and long private drive to a secluded hillside setting, the Haptor Residence has privacy in spades. But that is only one of the luxuries here. Perhaps not the last, but certainly as significant is the luxury of space. Both indoor and outdoor living space provide a pervasive sense of expansive living here, particularly in the double-height living room; but without pretense. Directly bordering protected Santa Monica Conservancy land, here one inhabits a private world. While grand, the residence is still grounded in nature and consciously designed to allow for quiet thinking and meditation. All is set within a Japanese garden by noted landscape designer Howard Oshiyama who, as a Zen Buddhist, endowed the site with its own spirit which is palpable.
