Although I would not want to start a war with H&S over this, I do believe we ought to register our trepidation with the commission that is going to rule on it.

Exactly, SDR. The connection could be set back far enough from the front façades and insignificant enough
to preserve the image of separate structures, with some smart landscaping to help to fill in ...

DRN, I believe you are correct, the wall was added to incorporate the house that Anna Wright owned into the "campus."

It is an impressive estate, nestled or not. But on the Jan. 19 issue of Curbed LA is another Jackson house on the market nearby that he did in collaboration with Sam Maloof (7,000 sf, $2.8M) that is a ...

The kitchen is at the same level. The entire house is on one level.

One detail that doesn't show well in photographs is the ceiling of the living room. The cascade of boards drops down toward the c ...

Am I missing something? An article about a house without pictures?

"The Guggenheim Museum ... is widely considered his best (and certainly most memorable)work." ... above a photo of Fallingwater!

I have a soft spot in my heart for Guggenheim, but I would ...

This is an inappropriate building for an unnecessary purpose. Museums do not have to be all things to all people. H&S has made it this far without expanding; there is no reason to assume it cannot ...

The penthouse is a separate unit, an 'efficiency' in CA terms, intended for the caretaker of the building. The kitchenette is contained in the cabinetry along the north wall.
The kitchen in the princ ...

I particularly like the quality of the wood in this house.
The simplicity of having the entire building consisting of little more than the two materials, rough-sawn wood and (Chicago?) brick, makes t ...
