The Lipetz House, 1936
Raphael Soriano, Architect
First offering for lease. Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #967. Acknowledged as one of the most rigorous adherents to the classic International Style, Soriano established his career with the Lipetz House, which was presented at the Paris Exposition in 1937; with it he won the prestigious Prix de Rome. A semicircular bank of windows in the music/living room maximizes panoramic views afforded by the ridge top site. Patio decking originally finished for dancing surrounds the house above the garden.
