The address of the house is 1456 Sunset Plaza Drive. What Google shows that the LA Times article doesn't make clear is that the carport is enclosed by heavy black drapery, open in the Times street view, closed on Google.

Wouldn't such a thing be problematic during heavy winds? Maybe it's a giant chamois that polishes the car when the wind blows.

I suppose the carport drape is what a circumspect owner does when he wants privacy but his house isn't ready to accept a garage conversion ?

And did you know that the Lews were the first nonwhites to cross the line in that neighborhood? (According to John Blanton, who worked for Neutra at the time)

We toured this house on the last conservancy conference. Its a shame that it was remodeled with the black cabinetry and black floors. All of the original warmth has been extinguished.
