The Getty Conservation Institute on Wednesday revealed plans behind the continued restoration and maintenance one of Los Angeles’ most stunning homes for generations to come.

The institute says the plans will work as a roadmap for the Eames Foundation on an ambitious conservation plan for the Eames House.

The home was built in 1949 by the pioneering husband-and-wife architectural and design team Charles and Ray Eames as their personal residence. It has since been declared a National Historic Landmark.

Notable for its airy open space, the windows that surround it, the unique furnishings inside and other touches, it sits tucked into a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

The conservation institute worked with the foundation in establishing a blueprint to protect the home for centuries going forward while allowing the public to continue to visit.
