Open House Obsession: Cool Minimalism in Los Feliz, $1.75MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 2249 Talmadge Street, Los Feliz
When: Sunday, April 30 from 2:00pm-5:00pm, Saturday, May 6 from 1:00pm-4:00pm and Sunday, May 7 from 2:00pm-5:00pm
What: A 3-bed, 3-bath hillside home by the late (but prolific) architect Steven Hill, who worked in a very personal hybrid style all over Los Feliz, leaving behind a legacy of stucco houses in a kind of LA-cool ’80s Brutalism crossed wth some Streamline Moderne curves and a lot of glass block.
The glass block seems to have been entirely expunged from this beautifully renovated Hill from 1987, but the sleek neutral-and-white interiors along with an Escher-like change in levels remain. It’s been home to music impresario Tom Windish, who recently merged his agency with Paradigm, and he’s created a gallery-like setting that would suit a growing art and furniture collection.
What We Love: The sleek new Ernestomeda custom kitchen than perches over the dining area.
One of the bedrooms has a steel bridge extending to a terrace carved out of the slope, with connects to a series of stairs and walkways extending uphill to a large paved view deck.
Below, a corner of the master suite and its luxurious new marble bath.
