Arthur Lavagnino

The James Real Studio/Residence, 1958


Completed within a year of the opening of Monsanto’s House of the Future in Tomorrowland at Disneyland, Real’s award winning studio/residence, sheltered at the base of Eagle Rock, confirms the optimism in technology of the period. Spirit and optimism still pervade Lavagnino’s light filled soaring hyperbolicparaboloid concrete shell spanning 38 feet, supported on four exterior columns. Tilt-up concrete panels and glass enclose interiors formalized by screens into living, dining, & bedroom areas. Interior space, recently restored and updated by designer Scott Mangan, flows naturally to the exterior patios and large site that incorporates gardens, a studio, 2 car garage and additional parking.
