Raphael Soriano, Architect

Drury House, 1941


Olympiad Drive in View Park implies an international outlook, yet when Soriano broke ground on the Drury House, traditional conformity was the norm. The house was controversial, if not even considered subversive. Today, its clean lines and efficiency of form, typifying the early heroic international style, vivifies the neighborhood. Steel framed ribbon windows lend horizontality to the two story residence which, like Gregory Ain’s earlier Beckman House in Hancock Park places the master bedroom and City view deck on the second floor, with the children’s/ guest rooms run down a corridor from the living area on the first floor. Includes: living/dining area w/ fireplace, private back yard, rooftop deck, and attached car garages.
