Silver Lake Modern Home. The Skinner House, 1937. William Kesling, Architect. Los Angeles Historical-Cultural Monument #856. Streamline Moderne was both a reaction to Art Deco and a reflection of austere economic times. Gone was unnecessary ornament. Sharp angles were replaced with simple, aerodynamic curves. Ultimately, the designs were horizontal in their orientation, serving as a precursor to the modernist movement that would begin in earnest a decade later.
Presenting the Ulm house, one of the Los Feliz Streamline Moderne built by celebrated 1930’s architect William Kesling. This iconic home brings in soaring city light views reaching out to the Pacific Ocean. Every detail exhibits true modern art-deco architecture and design of the 1930s.
