5535 El Campo is a beautifully updated modern with a convenient Westside location.

In spite of what some readers may have inferred from the bulk of my posts, I don’t have a bias against modernism. It’s just that it can be oh so serious, or worse, oh so silly. Or cold.

A 1976 build at 5535 El Campo has everything we love about modern domestic architecture — a sleek profile composed of balanced modules, free of superfluous ornament, with clean, sun-drenched, pleasingly proportioned interior spaces.
