The heart of Crestwood Hills, a woodsy enclave in the hills above Sunset Boulevard on Los Angeles' Westside, is a cooperative nursery school where parents are required to volunteer twice a month to help their children learn about silkworms, build sandcastles and touch the sky on a swing.

Cory Buckner loves her neighborhood: The airy 1950s-era homes tucked carefully on the hills above Brentwood, the quiet tangle of trees carpeting the hillside, and the unobtrusive backyards hidden away from neighbors' view. Preserving the original design of the Crestwood Hills community is so important to Buckner and four of her neighbors that they want their homes designated historic monuments.

I read with deep sadness of the passing of Edgardo Contini, FAIA. Edgardo was a towering presence in the Los Angeles design community whose pioneering efforts in residential land planning and design in the 1950s and 1960s created the innovative Crestwood Hills tract in Brentwood and residential prototypes as a part of the famous Case Study Houses program. His humane design principals touched thousands of lives. Edgardo was a valued friend and adviser to Architects/Designers/ Planners for Social Responsibility, this nation's largest pro-active group of designers (2,500 members)

Greg Marusak likes contemporary architecture with its loft-like spaces, natural light, open floor plans and use of concrete, steel and glass. It's no wonder then that the psychiatrist owns the GE2 House, which has all those things and then some. It's in Crestwood Hills, a prestigious neighborhood in the hills of Brentwood. GE2 may sound like a robot from the future, but the name incorporates the initials of the original owners and architects, two Gregs and two Erics.

Disadvantaged and disabled youngsters from nine children's centers in Los Angeles, Santa Monica and Venice will receive transportation to summer camp in Crestwood Hills Recreation Center, according to Supervisor Deane Dana. The $30,000 cost of the program, begun in 1983, will be paid for from Proposition A half-cent sales tax revenues.

The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy will receive 27.3 acres of open space from the J. Paul Getty Trust on Wednesday. The dedication ceremony will be at 2:30 p.m. at the Crestwood Hills Park Clubhouse, 1000 Hanley Ave., Brentwood. The land grant was made possible by Crestwood Hills Assn., which bought the land, a wooded parcel in Kenter Canyon, from the Getty Trust and donated it to the conservancy for preservation and public recreational use.
