Truly forgotten---including by Lautner himself, in the book he authored with Frank Escher. Find photos on both linked pages . . .

We did see this, however, some time ago---perhaps at the time that it was restored and published ? Built the year before Googie's, and Schaffer.

In a series of early houses Lautner deploys a novel structural idea in service of domestic need. This example couldn't be more straightforward, its construction (including the encapsulated inverted ceiling trusses) on display from every angle, inside and out.
