We must confess that John Lautner may be our favorite modernist architect. His designs were unique and very identifiable as his. He did a masterful job of combining materials to soften some of the perceived "coldness" of the modern structures. Here's a one of his smaller designs in the Hollywood Hills.
Here's what dreams are made of. Well, at least our dreams. This stunning example of the Hollywood Regency style by noted architect Elgin Woolf couldn't be closer to perfection. Elegance and sophistication are the foundation of this home. The European styled garden by Nord Eriksson is exquisite. Perhaps we'll get invited to a black-tie affair here one day.
Welcome to 6371 Orange Street. From the curb appeal of this classic Spanish 1930’s duplex to the period detail interiors, this property is loaded with charm. Enter the Art Deco doorways and discover the building’s prominent exterior carved archways are graciously repeated inside separating the common areas.
Another excellent architectural in Trousdale Estates. This exceptional example of a mid-century home has a plenty to love. Whether it is the gorgeous woodwork, the terrazzo flooring or the walls of glass, this home delivers. The generous size pool caps off the tour. We're hoping for an invite to the next BBQ.
Luxury houses are in no short supply on Rising Glen. This modernized mid-century is the personification of understated elegance. These original clean lines coupled with a sophisticated renovation make a beautiful match.
While we wouldn't expect Japanese modern from the architect best known for the Sierra Towers, we are quite impressed. Sited on a 27,000 square foot lot, lies with serene post and beam architectural home with zen gardens, a koi pond with walking bridge and stunning Cyprus shaped pool. All this in the center of the city.
When a house pops up in Crestwood Hills we get excited. This architectural home by A Quincy Jones and Whitney Smith did not let us down. Known as the Goldenfeld House, this property has been updated with respect to its origins. Clean lines and lots of glass always makes up happy.
Architect Val Powelson designed this residence on Astral drive for himself. While it's been updated modified with a second story, the charm is still evident in the clean lines, open floor plan and plenty of windows to allow the L.A. sunlight to shine thru.
Private and gated Mid Century Pool Home in the Hollywood Hills. As Hollywood was transitioning from the vintage glamour of the 1930’s and 1940’s, to what would become commonly known as the “mid century” design aesthetic. Ludwig Gluskin (a prominent band leader who worked with Orson Wells and George Burns) would commission architect Harry B Aarens to design a modern home on a special piece of property in the Hollywood Hills.
