Bryan & Jora Vess
Residential Restoration

Jora & Bryan Vess, and childrenA glass-enclosed Mid-Century Modern house on Mount Helix in La Mesa had been altered since it was designed and built in 1961 by architect John Mock. New owners, enthralled with its transparent glass window-walls and the blurring of indoor and outdoor spaces, found Mock and asked for his help in renovating and restoring the house and landscaping. Heritage Architecture and Planning and Verde Landscape Design consulted with Mock on the project. Energy- and water-saving devices were added, along with drought-tolerant plantings. Environmentally friendly and sustainable materials were used without interfering with the historic fabric of the house.

For early detection of the historic value of modernism and respectful treatment of this quintessential Southern California house, Bryan and Jora Vess are awarded the Residential Restoration Award.
