Elegant Mid-Century Beverly Hills Home
In Coldwater Canyon, Victor Gruen Architect
This 1950 mid-century home was originally designed by Victor Gruen architect. Along with his fellow Austrian born architects, Neutra and Schindler, Gruen emigrated to the United States during the war.
The architectural home is a bit of a departure for Gruen as he specialized in commercial buildings. It was suggest by The New Yorker that he “may well have been the most influential architect of the 20th century” as he was considered to have designed the first outdoor mall.
The property featured oversized windows that look out upon a lush garden. The prominent clerestory windows allow for an abundance of natural light.
The designer owners have seamlessly blended the classic 1950’s simple sophistication with modern elegance. The stunning fireplace inset in the brick wall opposite wood siding offers an artist’s pallet setting for the living room.
This property is on an expansive lot with multiple outdoor sitting areas and sculpture garden courtyard. The pool is a picture-perfect setting.
This exceptional modern is the perfect embodiment of the time.
