1973. The wilds of Topanga Canyon hold the first home built for sale by Phillip Coombs. This was the first of many collaborations, about 70, of Architect William Adams, FAIA and myself. We both called Topanga home in those days as did the Canned Heat and Joni Mitchell amongst others. My partner G. Fulton gave up land development and went on to found Concept Marine. I am still thinking about another Adams – Coombs venture! Shadow Stevens, noted radio personality of the time was the first owner.
