The Hines House, 1968

301 Chinquapin Lane, The Sea Ranch, CA


William Turnbull, Jr. (with Charles Moore, Donlyn Lyndon, and Richard Whitaker) created the masterplan of the ecologically-designed 10-mile coastal stretch known as The Sea Ranch. The seminal Hines House is offered here for the first time publicly since 1972. One of the first private residences designed by MLTW-Moore/Turnbull with William Turnbull Jr. as lead architect, the plan's dual program of "big house, bunk house" provides a gathering place for family, friends and visitors. Set on just over 1.5 acres of prime ocean/forest view property, Turnbull preserves the natural hillside by designing the levels of interior spaces to coincide with the slope. A vertical terrace

The Krasne Residence, 1956

1575 Queens Road, Los Angeles, CA


This ideal So-Cal Modern indoor/outdoor lifestyle by post-war U.S.C. architect Nisan Yale Matlin, A.I.A. is carefully updated in the spirit of the style over a thoughtful 10 year period by architectural designer Darrick F. Martin, whose ideas were inspired by the modern work of architect Paul R. Williams. Sited above the Sunset Strip at Hollywood Boulevard, the residence reflects an air of quiet repose from the gated entry at the street, and with its light filled interiors, affords a close-in peaceful and comfortable retreat from the jumble of the City. The residence is compact and efficient, but lives large with its outdoor entertainment pavilion, and lower level storage pods at the

The Roxy Roth Residence, 1946

3624 Buena Park Drive, Studio City, CA


Rudolph Schindler’s Roth Residence, 1946 with recent studio space by Barbara Bestor: Unless prepared, one’s first reaction to the Roth Residence is likely astonishment. The structure simply defies conventional concepts of dwelling. Yet the real drama and success of the life space reveals itself slowly. Walking up the front staircase to the entry one wonders what might be behind that door? The entry vestibule reveals another staircase, a straight compressed assent into the light. With the placement of cabinetry at the top of the stairs nothing is revealed until one is fully enveloped in great living space and panoramic vistas. At that instant it all makes sense. Why not live in a work of

The Sleeve House

Taghkanic, NY


Here is a rare opportunity to own a truly unique and hyper-contemporary home. Located in the Hudson Valley town of Taghkanic, this all-season weekend home is sited on nearly 15 acres of open, rolling meadows, a setting that affords privacy, as well as dramatic valley and mountain views. As enigmatic as it is practical, the structure has intimate spaces for cooking, dining, and living, a tall, thin vertical slice for circulation, and a dramatic entry gallery. The sustainably-sourced Accoya wood skin, charred by a Japanese finishing technique called “shou sugi ban,” gives the house’s façade a rough, weathered texture, a contemporary reinterpretation of the exteriors of old barns in the

The Samuel Goodwin Residence, 1941

3807 Reklaw Drive, Studio City, CA


Samuel Goodwin Residence, 1941. In Vienna by 1912, Schindler had already envisioned a new modern architecture defined not by structure, but rather by space as its sole medium. Good space was the key to creating a dwelling that would be “a quiet flexible background for a harmonious life.” He wrote that, at long last, “the architect has finally discovered the medium of his art: space.” Organically, his buildings became “volumetric pieces of hollow sculpture.” The Goodwin Residence is just that. What more could one ask for? Sited for maximum privacy, and long, serene canyon vistas, the light-filled residence incorporates
a front courtyard and patio, 2 bedrooms, convertible

Artist Studio

Paris 16th, Paris, FR


Designed by the architect Robert Mallet-Stevens, Jan and Joel Martel's studio is an absolute masterpiece, the dream of every architecture lover. Impressive high ceiling (up to 20 Ft) required for the work of sculptors and several levels that gave them varied perspectives, intact, offer an extraordinary living room of 1840 square feet with spectacular volumes and large windows. This creative place was transformed thanks to a contemporary arrangement, deliberately discreet: the main workshop turned into a large and bright living room, a bedroom was fitted on the mezzanine with skylight window, a Boffi kitchen in the former winter garden with fountain, a bathroom and a dressing room in
