Loving Rex Lotery in Woodland Hills, $1.4MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 4143 Cachalote Street, Woodland Hills
What: The Spanner House, 1968, a 3-bed, 3-bath, multilevel home by the Mid-Century master Rex Lotery (1930-2007). Lotery, a British-born Los Angeles architect whose most significant projects were large-scale urban planning efforts, was also a skilled designer of residential projects, mostly in stucco, redwood and fir, all beautifully crafted gems that are enjoying a resurgence of interest. This lovely home on a sloping lot appears to be two stories from the street (at top and below) but inside, it’s a complex series of spaces, lit from above with clerestory windows.
The house reveals itself slowly, starting at the entry, and once inside, bands of windows that appear to be a second story are actually filterting light into the living space.
What We Love: It’s the prefect entry-level architectural setting for a burgeoning collection of Mid-Century design.
