First time on the market! The Olsen House, 1954; the architect's own home! In the National Register and a Berkeley Landmark. Olsen applied his "high art" International Style training to create his own "machine for living in a garden". Also described as "a cube within a cube", it has an underlying cube with a perimeter foundation that appears to be well anchored into the hillside. This was the family's home for a life time, and has fostered creativity and intellectual discourse. The crystal box, thrust out amongst the treetops, served not as a quiet family retreat, drafting office, and studio for Helen's painting, but also as a gracious space for entertaining Berkeley's residents and visiting luminaries in the circle of the arts.
