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.

Ray, Alvin Residence (1950)
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 1962.
