History[edit]

The complex was built in Modern architectural style.[2] Each unit originally consisted of a bedroom on the ground level, and a sleeping porch on the upper level. Each unit enjoys a view of La Jolla's Windansea Beach.

The San Diego Historical Society declared the complex a historic district in 1977 (historic site #117).
