The Wystrach-Adams Residence by Architect Eric Lloyd Wright.  The American modernist movement during the 1990s is generally overlooked, architecturally speaking. But with the Wystrach-Adams residence, a magical combination of surface, structure & transparency comes to the forefront of this incredibly rare, avant-garde natural compound in the lush hills of La Crescenta.

A breathtaking sweeping entry comprised of curved aggregate concrete with dramatic windows and staircase.

The curved roofline and exterior play on light Deconstructivism. The interior seamlessly weaves the surroundings into the home with organic materials, natural light and flow. A breathtaking sweeping entry comprised of curved concrete, copper-accents and slanted skylights. A large living area, open den and dining room divided by a two-story oval concrete fireplace. 

With its rich original wooden cabinetry, the partially vaulted kitchen incorporates a two-story mitred window, skylights, and clerestory windows.

The rooms are tied together by a 36-foot-long lighting accent. An abundance of natural light comes from a continuous wall of glass doors. The mountainous backdrop was uniquely designed into the guest bathroom by mosaic tiler Paul Clarke. La Crescenta Eric Lloyd Wright the Wystrach-Adams Residence.

The original owner was enamored with the curves of the nearby area, and they are consistent in the home, in beams, glass, coved lighting, steel, marble and built ins. A true compound, the property has a permitted ADU with full bath above the garage as well as a gym, laundry, additional bath, and bonus room in the ground level.
