John Lautner, FAIA

The Tyler House, 1950



The master said it all: “Architecture is no place to be indulging in superficiality! Architecture must be Art.” The Tyler House is nothing less than Art…Art for living. The property is sited in a grove of protected Oak and Sycamores just minutes from Ventura Boulevard. Here, Lautner ingeniously develops the plan by superimposing three equilateral triangles between the trees, and gently stepping interior living spaces up the slope. The result is a timeless unity in nature of site and structure which together dissolve indoor-outdoor distinctions. All is one. Residence includes: Open plan living/dining area in the trees. 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, office, storage, and 2-car carport.
