John Lautner, FAIA

The Gantvoort Residence, 1947


As one drives down the curving private drive into the glen, only the vaulted metal roof hints of the drama of the architecture, all is hidden. Embarking on the parking plaza one searches for entry, it must be down that long narrow path along the front of the structure. There is a sense of mystery as one proceeds, but upon entering all is revealed. Here is shelter, light, and warmth. Wood trim softens and integrates the exposed steel trusses supporting the ceiling. Inclined glass walls look out to the natural pool and gardens. Living at one within nature is the gift. Includes: open plan living area, 3 bedrooms, two baths, and original pool on nearly an acre site.
