Del Rey Hotel and Apartments (circa 1954) by Ed Killingsworth (Killingsworth, Brady & Smith)

Del Rey Hotel and Apartments (ca. 1954)
3455 Del Rey Street, Pacific Beach
This project was i
ncluded in UC Santa Barbara’s University Art Museum show A Beautiful Nothing: The Architecture of Edward A. Killingsworth. Aparently the Del Rey was the first hotel apartment building that KBS ever completed. The firm had been primarily residential to that point.


Case Study Triad "House A"

Case Study “Triad” House A - standing
2342 Rue de Anne, 1960
One of three related houses where the earlier Arts & Architecture puritanical vocabulary of post, beam and glass are now played off against water (reflecting pond). One of only three (hence “Triad”) San Diego examples of the 36-building Case Study program sponsored by Arts & Architecture magazine editor John Entenza and USC’s School of Architecture (1945 -’66) to promote modernism as a stylish, livable architectural form. Situated three feet below street level, House A’s 10-foot front door is reached via a pre-cast concrete path floated over a shallow reflecting pool. This 6-room modified U-plan is the most complex of the three resawn tongue and groove redwood boarding houses decoratively enhanced by the (wood and steel) post and beam (laminated wood) motif.

Case Study “Triad” House B - remodeled beyond recognition
2343 Rue de Anne, 1960
This 3-bedroom, 2-bath house was originally designed (in fir boarding) such that all of its rooms were arranged around courts and a loggia enabling its occupants to reach any room without crossing another.

The simplest plan of the three, House C engages the visitor, with according to Killingsworth, “an elusive, friendly quality.” Each room is extended by a focal point or view through glass (such as the inner loggia/courtyard/garden, as well as outdoor space) and its 10-foot ceilings. Killingsworth, a graduate of USC’s School of Architecture (1940), was the recipient of many national and international awards for the “Triad” houses, as well as for his Case Study House #25 Riva Alto Canal house
