Kunzel Residence Receives Historic Designation

The Kunzel residence, built in 1951, is architecturally significant as a prime example of the Modernist movement. The building embodies the distinctive characteristics of a type, period, and method of modern construction. Designed by noted San Diego architect, Robert Mosher, FAIAE, the residence also derives architectural significance as a representative example of the work of a master architect. It is an important example of the best residential architecture of the Modern period (1940's through 1960's) and should be protected and preserved.

The City of San Diego's Historical Resources Board designated it and the new owner who wishes to demolish it is appealing that decision to the City Council.
