In The Hollywood Hills, Living With Architecture, $8MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Starting from a simple but classic Modernist house designed by Richard Neutra in 1958, this exquisite compound above Sunset evolved over the years into an ideally stylish example of LA living.
Neutra created the house for Eugene Loring, one of Hollywood’s most successful choreographers, in a “boxcar” format– a long, linear structure with walls of glass that opened along the length of the house. Later owners undertook renovations with the firm of Escher Gunewardena, adding a primary suite and extensive landscaping, plus a free-standing 1981 guesthouse by architect Steven Ehrlich pays homage to Neutra’s designs of the 1930s.
Below, the primary bedroom suite opens to the outdoors.
Fittingly, Ehrlich’s two-story guest house pays homage ot Neutra’s groundbreaking 1927-29 Lovell Health House in Los Feliz.
