A change for our regular programming – not your typical city loft – however it has the open plan living and the floor-to-ceiling windows you’d expect. Saarinen’s buildings are truly timeless classics and this is one of the few family homes he had ever designed.
After two years of restoration, John Lautner’s famous Chemosphere house in the Hollywood Hills above Los Angeles, is once again the remarkable innovative design that Lautner created in 1960. The new owners Angelika and Benedikt Taschen first saw the house in 1997 in a neglected state, and set about repairing the building and Lautner’s reputation. “(The house) was unique”, Ms. Taschen recalled. “authentic and intense, idealistic and full of fantasy, non-conformist. I felt immediately that it fit our character perfectly.”
When Frank Lloyd Wright completed the Ennis house in 1924, he immediately considered it his favorite. The last and largest of the four concrete-block houses that Wright built in the Los Angeles area remains arguably the best residential example of Mayan Revival architecture in the country.
The one-story house is one of Wright’s smaller homes and one of his favorites. It showcases a lovely ellipse shape and occupies an area of 2500 square meters. Featuring three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the crib has flowing and gently curved spaces.
