One of John Lautner’s personal ‘favourite five’ homes is for sale – the dramatic Wolff Residence, designed as a homage to his mentor Frank Lloyd Wright.
The 1961 Los Angeles property sits on a steep plot above Sunset Plaza in Hollywood Hills West. It was commissioned by interior decorator Marco Wolff Jr as a riposte to Wright’s iconic Fallingwater House and tumbles down the hillside as a series of staggered rectangles built from stone, glass and copper.
A vast living room flanked by 16ft-long windows crowns the modernist property alongside a modernized kitchen and dining room. On the middle floor is the master bedroom suite, while an angular swimming pool and deck fills the bottom level, two stories above the street.
