Mr. & Mrs.
Harwell Hamilton Harris Residence (1952)
2736 E. Mission Road, Fallbrook
Planning in 1951 for a combined home/office, Harris’s own
home was organized around four trellised courts. Construction depended
on heat-absorbing concrete block walls -- one of them a freestanding
visual separation between the living room court and the drafting
room court. Before the house was finished Harris took a position
as Director of the School of Architecture at the University of
Texas. Although completed the following summer, the Harrises only
lived in the home for five days.

167 Burma Road
Designed by Harwell Hamilton Harris. While designing the Ray House in 1950, the Harrises fell in love
with the inland desert climate and decided to build a house for
themselves. The vertical-grained redwood Ray house is built around
a 100-foot wide boulder, which was incorporated into the terrace
(and along with the high, gabled lattice arbor). Published in "What's
New With Harwell Hamilton Harris?" in House & Home, January
